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.

signora oye veythep tidar

I was given a name by a young boy when I travelled through Thailand. He called me Thep Tidar (prounounced tep-tea-dah), which is a Thai diety, like the daughter of an angel. I introduced myself as Thep Tidar when I traveled in S.E. Asia, but the name faded away when that chapter of my life came to a close. 6 years ago

discowaffle¿Qué pasa, calbaza?

I guess this is a common phrase in spanish. It means “What’s going on, pumpkin?” My spanish teacher said that to me once, and I thought it was so cool.

And if that doesn’t count, my “spanish name” in class is Lupita… because Keegan isn’t exactly hispanic. 8 years ago

Carrie Marshallwei xiao tian shi

dparkz1foreign terms of endearment

On a tv show last week, I heard a mother call a small child a very sweet nickname. She said it was a common nickname in her country for children. I thought it translated into English as “little mouse” but I don’t remember the nickname, or the language. Anyone out there know? 8 years ago


Yes, odd but very cool and it’s quite flattering – I’ve always wanted to be compared to a sausage. :D 8 years ago
