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.

OK, so I still haven’t acted in a play in the last 16+ years, it has been about 10 years since I was backstage in a theatre and it has been about 4 years since I last helped finance a friend’s play. But today I did go to see one. A couple of monologues from Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads by the Queen’s English Theatre Company here in Amsterdam. The good news is that one of my friends knows the guy running the theatre company, so perhaps if I play my cards right I could get an audition for a future play. At least I have made a local connection. Baby steps! 2 years ago

iSocialEyesYou can do it ...

Hi there,

This is such a tough industry. My experience includes both television (BBC) and experience in Theatre (Royal National Theatre.)

The trick is to offer something new to the industry. I have never followed cliched conventions in acting.

I have now created my own unique project. I have created a social networking site at . As well as what you would expect from the social networking world, this site will offer a brand new TV series, online movies and be the ‘powerhouse’ behind our touring Theatre production. YES WE HAVE AUDITIONS FOR ALL 3 OF THE PROJECTS! All are invited, whether you are in the UK or not. Head over to and sign up and then fill in your details on the ‘Auditions / Interviews’ page. When you sign up, my profile will be in the top left hand corner and you are welcome to ask me as many questions you would like to know about how I have got acting work in the past :)

Look forward to welcoming you soon! :) 4 years ago

mia76i got a different part this year!

instead of 3 supporting roles i got one main character! i’m so excited. it’s for “Opera van Holland” (a parody of a TV show). with me acting is like on/off. most of the time i’m too shy to do it and i really have try hard to convince myself to do it, but once i’m in i love it and i remember how addictive it is and i really get into it. :) 4 years ago

not only play, but also produce ]:> 4 years ago

nerdatheartAct in a play

The best tip I could offer is this: When you’re on stage, look at the audience as a whole, DON’T focus on any one person. Especially if you know anyone there. Let me tell you, when you’re up there, it is a DRUG. Being on stage is one of the finest memories I have and no one can take that experience from you. 4 years ago

Kayla Elliottat the moment i wasn't happy about it...

but now i see that it was fun. That was waaayyyyy back in 4th grade, and it was kinda forced because it was graded. but all the stuff in the cramped, un-air-conditioned backstage was great, and i made some new friends in the process(including the guy my character was married to). I might even try to act in another one. 4 years ago


I’m in acting class! 4 years ago
