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.

this is just a test41) Hem trousers using the blind hem stitch on my sewing machine.

I think I finally got the hang of it. 21 months ago


this is just a testdarn

The blind hem stitch on my machine is oriented backwards from the one in the video so it’s a no go. At least watching it motivated me to get out my machine & try it though. Now I will try to figure out a blind hem stitch the regular way… 21 months ago


this is just a testOh,

those bikini area ingrown hairs are the worst. I switched to super cheap razors w/ only one blade. The more expensive multi-blade razors are what seem to cause ingrown hairs for me. 21 months ago


this is just a testBosom Buddies

I am in a romantic relationship with my dept lead. The mood of this dream is somewhat somber because she is wrecking the relationship with her husband & I am wrecking the relationship with the boyfriend in order that we might be together. I felt amused by the dream when I first woke up & then until I got to work. After that I felt a little embarrassed. I didn’t tell my dept lead because that would be too weird & inappropriate, even for me. My dept lead is a heavy woman with a large chest & all day I found myself acutely aware of this fact, trying discreetly to back up from her so I wouldn’t accidentally touch her boob. Anyway, I will probably forget all about the dream by Monday. One of the benefits of a short attention span. 21 months ago

really cool. 21 months ago


this is just a test40) Use a bike bell.

This new (to me) bike has a bell. When I came upon a nitwit walking in the bike path, all I had to do was ring the bell & my path was magically cleared. No more old yeller, which I love, because I hate yelling. Amazing what a little tinkly bell can do. 21 months ago


this is just a testThanks bunches.

Your posts gave me the idea of hourly tracking. I made a little spreadsheet in excel that I can slip into my pocket & carry with me, checking off the hours as I go. 21 months ago
