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.

I lived to tell the tale of the girl whose clickity clanks echoed through campus. Whoo hooo! happy dance

However I am not ready to mark this goal off as I definitely felt pretty wobbly and not super comfortable with my stride. With more practice though I feel that I will get there. 2 years ago

makeyourself23Click, clack....

I am going to embark into the world of snow, ice, and slippery floors with some heeled boots today gulp. Hopefully all goes well, although last week I took a bad fall from tripping on shoelaces…so yeah. Klutzes cross your fingers for me! 2 years ago

makeyourself23More practice!

I’m practicing right now as I clean my room. :D 2 years ago

I have went out in heels at least 3 times now so I have been getting a bit better. However not to the point where I can strut it out with confidence and gusto! 3 years ago

TheDarlingDameDid it!

Now I own three pairs 3 years ago


why is this so hard? I walk around the house on the balls of my feet, but for some reason heels hurt. Maybe because the heels I have are two dollars? Or is this the “breaking in heels” pain I’ve never been aquainted to? I don’t know, but either way, it’s painful. 3 years ago

emmasaurusPractice makes perfect....hopefully!

Keeping my heels on all day today! I’ve fallen over twice so far and I’ve only had them on since 10am! Not the best start, but a start nonetheless. I aim to be dancing in them by Christmas! :P 3 years ago


I have a pair of divine Jessica Simpson black heels. I bought them for when I have to be fancy and they look great! Now to just walk in them… 3 years ago


Although I am able to walk in them it isn’t a particularly flattering walk. Basically I want to feel comfortable and confident in my heels and ROCK them. 3 years ago


:) Going out tonight for a friends birthday dinner. Going to wear 9cm (3.5 inch) heels with my dress because they’re gorgeous black ones and flats don’t compliment the dress. The walk from the station to the restaurant is about ten minutes. Hope I can last, going to practice walking around the house now before I leave 3 years ago
