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.

55to64I Love to Cook

I love cooking and I’m pretty good at it. I also think I write recipes well. My instructions are easy to understand and make sense to novices. I’ve made a couple of cook books for young brides and they’ve enjoyed them a lot. They’ve been shared with others and I hear tales of how using the recipes made a special occasion a smash hit!

So, now I cook and I bake. Mostly I bake and I bake for two which is a trick. My cake recipes are mostly cupcakes that can be frozen. I do make really great cookies. ;-) I make candy as well. My peanut brittle is really good.

I know this sounds like I’m bragging on myself, but I there are so many things I can’t do that when I find one I can, then I get excited!

A cook book would be great! Think I’ll give it a try. 6 years ago


I’m developing my recipes for when i start selling my cookies (as part of the start own business goal) so i’m getting creative and actually writing them down, a good step! 6 years ago
