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.

learn screenprinting


Entries from everyone

Renee47Took it in college

I took a screen printing class as an undergrad—I had a wonderful instructor. I am a lazy person and do not really care for tedious processes. I really loved silk screening so that tells you it is fairly easy. I still print my own T shirts in my studio. I should set up a print studio again instead of painting. 3 years ago


I want to learn and develop my screen printing to support myself and get off the grid:D 5 years ago




i finally learned how to screen print. not even near mastering the skill but i’ve gotten the basic fundamentals down. my brother has a full-blown screenprinting studio in his basement and he’s going to let me take over and print until my little heart desires. after my girls are tucked in, i spend a couple hours illustrating designs until my eyes are bloodshot. after 10+ years designing strictly on a computer, it makes for some rusty gears. i’m getting a hang of it again though—feels good! 7 years ago

incessantly caffeinatedUntitled

Putting this on hold. I don’t have the space to do this, nor the money to buy the supplies (or, rather, I do, but I have other expenses that are more pressing). 7 years ago


i’ve started to learn screenprinting, but just like with photography, i want to be better. the most layers i’ve done is three, & i want to become better at aligning layers. i’d also love to screenprint some shirts, & then possbily other things. 8 years ago

MichelleScreenprint everything possible

i’ve illustrated some images that i want to screenprint onto a lampshade to go in my daughter’s room. from there, i want to move into a “wall collage” of screenprinted works and natural materials (which is the best way to describe it). who knows? maybe pillows, shirts and sheets next. my brother is teaching me the basics this weekend, so we’ll see where i land. i’m hoping to set up a makeshift shop in my basement if the dog will allow me the room. 9 years ago
