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.

Go to Aruba
Southwest Airlines

has started offering service to several Caribbean destinations including Aruba. You can check out their interactive route map.

Be forewarned, that route map has limitations. For instance, it shows that one can fly between Austin and Aruba, but makes it hard to figure out that service doesn’t begin until November 8. At this page page you can see when service will begin from your departure city.

It boils down to frequent flyer points + Aruba taxes = inexpensive honeymoon!

43t anniversary next week

My dear 43things, the past 8 years have given me love, hope, friends, and myself. Thank you all, for the amazing people here are what made this community so special.

I am very glad for the experience I had here, and for two more things… that y’all delightful people have invaded popclogs and made it our own, and that @clara-and-clarice created a tool to download all my entries and comments from 43things as its own little website within my computer. Hallelujah!

Here is a link to her creation and instructions on how to back up your things:

Say farewell to 43Things :( (read all 3 entries…)
goodbye update

I absolutely don’t want to see 43things go… I regret not being around much lately, and have had a lot of things going on in the past year! I thought I’d give an update about life to anyone curious in these parts.

My falling off the map began when my dad passed away. Then my fella’s dad. I’ve begun a second job teaching, and now my fella and I are buying a house near his 7 year old daughter. Soon after that we will be married. It has been a vibrant and tumultuous year and a half, the best highs and saddest lows of my life. And my bird list is up to ~160… I fell so behind in posting!

Thank you all for being there for me, for your encouragement and support, and being your inspiring selves. I appreciate you all so much. I agree with Cloudberry that Popclogs does not look appealing, and it certainly doesn’t feel like home, but I will head across the street to find you all if that will be the new watering hole.

See all entries ...


I want to:
