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.

megan_reneekombucha? Yes.

Also, I’m now brewing kombucha :) Three batches in, and all is well. Brought my scoby home for Christmas break, and my family is slightly horrified. 2 years ago

attempted to grow an herb garden this year and failed 5 years ago

pmyers8171I found a nice, simple recipy!

I’d love to try some Rose Green tea. It calls for 30 rosebuds, a specific type of green tea (but I’m sure any type would be fine,) and hot water. I’d add some honey and/or ginseng and try to make something throat-soothing and energy-reviving. My status now reads my current situation. I have symptoms of both (more of Lyme than Mono, but my school nurse called home wanting me to get checked for it.) Not fun. Something soothing and sweet would be nice on my throat. 5 years ago


My step mom used to do this all the time. Then again, she’s a trained herbologist. I definitely know my way around herbal medicines, but I’d like to become more familiar with wild foraging. I know that St. John’s Wart grows wild around here, so I’ve got to keep an eye out for that. 7 years ago
