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.

Moving to an island west of Norway, with the previous, and best, job I had. Wasn’t exactly a big turning point, but still. A fun experience, yay. 2 years ago

prinsessemarieDay 4; imaginary friend.

If I had one, this would be him. The long arm is for awesome hugs, of course, and the colors is for camouflage. 2 years ago

prinsessemarie#4 Mio min Mio by Astrid Lindgren

Swedish writer from my childhood, brings back good literary memories. It’s about a sad orphan boy who is brought by a genie to his real father in another world. The reason he is there is to win a battle over some awful and powerful man. On his way he meets people with each their special thing, who helps him. Really classic fairy tale. 2 years ago


So. The new harmonica I ordered turned out to be a big disappointment. First of all it was mostly plastic, and second of all, the sound of it is kind of crappy. So I haven’t played a tune since I got it.
Crap. 2 years ago


Haha. Din raring! Det ser hvertfall overdrevent ryddig ut, skulle ønske det var sånn!
Takk <3. 2 years ago


It’s a bad start-off for this challenge. But I’m pre-sick and have been laying on the couch for the last three hours without the energy to move. So then I opened mspaint and drew my living room, and my feet. Tomorrow I’ll try to draw something with pen and paper. That’ll be fun! 2 years ago

prinsessemarieSaturday night.

So, apparently I played the birthday song for my best friend, on the harmonica, in a bar, in a room decorated as a kitchen. I can imagine it looked something like this, and if I remember it correctly it didn’t go too well.
It was still my first professional performance, whether I remember it or not! 2 years ago


Yes! I’d love that! 2 years ago

prinsessemarieSuper Mario Brothers Theme, ehehhee.

Whilst waiting for breakfast I found the tiny harmonica was laying oddly close to me at the table, so I picked it up, played a tune, put it down again, found, found Super Mario Brothers Theme, picked up the harmonica again, and started my magic. Obviously it’s on the table again, but I was just excited to write about it! The theme song sounds kind of awesome, even though it’s going sloooooow.
For this song for now, I’m pretending that Luigi ate a magic mushroom and the whole song is in slow motion. 2 years ago

Hehe, that’s a cute story :) Yeah, buy one! I’m still waiting for mine to arrive, even though I have two. I want a new one to be the new kick-off for my career!

And also, I adopted your ‘write music’ goal, because that’s what I want to do. Good luck with your keyboard! 2 years ago

So, virtual letters counts.
I got one! 2 years ago


Hi, Angela.
What kind of relationship are we talking about here? 2 years ago


I did! One hour ago :) 2 years ago


It’s come to my attention, that most of my goals is about writing. And what do I do? I sit here and write about wanting to write more. As I have several unfinished novels, including the failures from Nanowrimo, I should have plenty to work on. But no. Finding new blogs, re-reading old blogs, checking Facebook every five minute, opening new Word-documents, closing them without a single word to save. I should really add a goal about stopping my procrastination.
Starting now, I’ll close (or at least minimize) Chrome, and get my real writing on! 2 years ago


Første ord kommer på mandag! 2 years ago

I have two regular ones, so I’m really excited about this red one! Green sounds awesome as well :) 2 years ago

prinsessemarieGuess what!

Yesterday I ordered myself a new harmonica! I have faith in this one! Plus, it’s SO cute! I hope it arrives tomorrow!! 2 years ago
