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.

Thereza RoussoulieresFirst Step

First I have bought an interesting book about new methods to improve my English – 29th July 4 months ago

DyniaKlau43 things :)

This site helps me to improve English because I write here in this language :) After session I’m going to read a book in English. 10 months ago


I’ll start reading books in English and I’ll note the unknown words- and I’ll study them after reading! I’ll do this once a week, starting from tomorrow! 11 months ago

amaniaHow intonation can change the meaning of a sentence (video)

I found something useful and interesting. I recommend watching this short, 11-min video about English pronunciation and intonation: 18 months ago


I think I have a pretty good english pronounciation, but my vocabullary is a little poor.
I would like to increase my english vocabullary to be able to understand more when I read something, watch a movie or listen to a song. Hopefully one day I will be able to have conversations in english as easy as I talk in my native language.
The only problem is that most people have bad pronounciation and there are many classes that are aimed to theese people, but I haven’t seen classes aimed to people with poor vocabullary.
I hope I can find something like that or some class that is more about writing, because it would inevitably end up focusing more on vocabullary. 19 months ago

amaniaWords "mashed" together

This is a part of an article copied from Year of English:

There are some combinations of words that English speakers “mash” together so frequently that we actually have special spellings for them which reflect the way that people often pronounce them. You don’t use these spellings in formal writing, but if you’re writing a story and want to show that the characters in the story are speaking casually, you can write their dialogue this way:

  • could have – coulda
  • would have – woulda
  • should have – shoulda
  • have to – hafta
  • want to – wanna
  • I’m going to – I’m’a
  • (have) got to – gotta
  • (have) got a – gotta
  • what do – whadda
  • what do you – whaddya
  • (I’ve) got you – gotcha
  • would you – wouldja
  • don’t you – doncha
  • what’s up – wuzzup/wassup
  • let me – lemme

Quite useful, don’t you think? 23 months ago
