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.

- The Robots.

write a song

i’ve been playing guitar for a while now, and i really enjoy it. i would love to take it a bit further and hopefully write my own song. it will take a while but, i’m sure it would be worth it.

Take more pictures

i would love to take pictures of my friends, events, personal experiences, and anything else worth taking pictures of. i think it would be a great way to look back in the next couple of years and see what changed.

i requested for a digital camera for christmas but, instead recieved a video camera. it’s fun and it does have a built in camera but, it’s kind of cheap. so, i keep having to use my sister’s camera which dies after a week or so.

maybe i’ll get lucky and find about a thousand dollars and buy myself a nice camera :D but, in reality, i would have to save up for one. oh well, it’ll be worth it.

i’m going to LA with a friend this weekend and hopefully i may find a decent camera that will last me a while. wish me luck!

Read more (read all 2 entries…)

i honestly can’t get into a book! the past 2 books that i’ve read (or skimmed through) never really struck my fancy. i probably need some help with choosing books. also, i should really start going back to the library. the school library isn’t the greatest source for good literature at my school.

i would appreciate it if someone would recommend some books :D my reading level is anywhere from 6th-11th grade so, i could really read anything without having trouble.
