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.

hhannahwhen I was younger dancing came easily...

but if you saw the spectacle I made of myself learning how to salsa this past vacation you would think i was mentally challenged. I just couldnt for the life of me follow any instructions. At the time I felt embarrassed but came home and forgot all about it. Sometimes the kids and I will play dance party on the Wii and i can do okay mimicing some moves but have more fun just making it up as I go along. The other day there was a garage sale to raise money for cancer society and I was looking at the dvd’s….and saw “dancing with the stars workout” Bought it for $1, came home popped it in the dvd player and I am learning to salsa. Then it occurred to me that I always could follow along with aerobics, step classes, and cardio training….yet getting the coordination dancing was a problem. I had to loosen my hips a bit, feel more womanly and its just like following a cardio or aerobic routine. I know I will get this and will be a graceful dancer soon! cha cha cha! 8 months ago

Hala GaafarA challenge

Well, besides being fun and a great exercise, I got a serious problem with what we locally call “shatara”, meaning I just can’t dance :3
The dances I’d enjoyed the most were those childhood crazy ones that included my siblings. Makes me smile even now. But I wish my moves were graceful and not so awkward as they are now.
Well, I dance, shatra as I am, even though Sudanese dancing doesn’t require more than standing and clapping in time with music, it still sucks.
So far I’d checked for online lessons, and my first attempt will be tap dancing :)
Crazy, know ^^ but it is all about having fun, isn’t it? 18 months ago


I’ve always wanted to learn how, seeing the Just Dance movies and freestyles types of dances. I’ve always been an awkward dancer, so instead of taking a class, I’ll watch some how to videos before I think about doing so. I think a dance class would be more exciting for people who aren’t as shy though! 18 months ago

doggleszumba again today

the music was so loud! i feel old saying that, but it left my ears ringing a bit after.
i think i should just accept the fact that i’m never going to be a good dancer. i’ve got over my fear of dance exercise classes though, so that’s good. at least i have a sense of rhythm if nothing else! i’m going to try to continue with the classes to try and lose some weight but i don’t have high hopes of becoming coordinated so i think i’m going to give up on this goal. 19 months ago

dogglesi've been to zumba a few times now, and just jhoom! once

i’m certainly not a natural dancer, but hopefully with more practice i will improve. 20 months ago
