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.

Still Working on It!

I have recently become employed – yes, I am finally teaching some writing courses!!! I haven’t stopped reading but I have been pinched for time in keeping this (and other goals) updated! I think there’s a shot I’ll make it! I just need to post my lil book review testaments! I seriously plan on setting down and commiting them all (10!!)to “multimodal text” within the next few weeks! Bring on FALL BREAK!

Book 12

New Moon by Stephanie Meyer
(2nd in the Twilight series)

Interesting read….I can see the appeal the series has for the teen set….the relationship between the two lead characters is that crazy teenage all-consuming love that we all remember so well with a jacked up vampire/werewolf twist….I’m interested to see where the 3rd book is going. I think Bella’s behavior is a little obsessive and somewhat erratic, and she tends to be a little thoughtless but I guess it goes with the age. I can’t wait to see the movie….I have a feeling the werewolves are going to be smoking hot =)

Book 11

Eternals by Neil Gaiman

Another fabulous graphic novel by Gaiman. The story centers around the Eternals, a group of immortals created by the Celestials(aka Giant Alien Robot Things). The Eternals were created to act protectors of the Earth and all its inhabitants. Their enemies are the “changing people” or “deviants”....who pretty much look like monsters. The story covers a lot of cool theories about some of humanity’s greatest myths and mysteries…I hope there’s more to come from this series =) A must read!
