Dear 43 Things Users,

10 years after introducing 43 Things to the world, we have decided we have met our last goal: completing the incredible experience that has been 43 Things. Please join us in giving one last cheer to all the folks who have shared their goals with the world, as well as all the people who have worked at The Robot Co-op to build this incredible website. We won a Webby Award, published a book, and brought happiness to a lot of people.

Starting today, 43 Things users can export their goals and entries from the site. Starting August 15, we will make the site “read only”. 43 Things users will still be able to view the site and export their content, but we won’t be taking any new content from users. We hope to leave the site up for folks to see and download their content until the end of the year. Ending on New Year’s Eve takes us full circle.

It has been a long ride (one of our original goals was to "build a company that lasts at least 2 years” - we beat that one!) While we wish the site could live on, it has suffered from a number of challenges - changes in how people use the site, the advertising industry, and how search engines view the site. We wish the outcome was different – but we’ve always been realistic about when our goals are met and when they aren't.

As of today, you will be able to download your goals and entries. See more about that on the FAQ page. Thanks for 10 great years of goal-setting and achieving.

learn how to sew (read all 2 entries…)
I've signed up for classes

and took my first last week. I have a month’s worth coming up and I can’t wait. I actually made something on my first day.



make a mosaic
I've wanted to do this for years

I got some small mirror tiles and small colored tiles to break and add to my calavera project (a painted and decorated skull figure for Day of the Dead). while this isn’t just a mosaic project (the mosaic pieces are to add to the rest of the decorated skull figure), I feel like it’s definitely a start to making mosaic pieces.

I got a book at the used bookstore yesterday about making mosaics, so it’s definitely something I want to do soon. The book will serve as inspiration to take my mosaic idea further. I’d love to do a table top!



Let go of the past (read all 6 entries…)
This one has been quite a struggle the past

week. I keep seeing how emotionally tied I am to people and situations from my past….

This one is gonna take a while!
