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.

bloemwhere to start

Let’t not make things more difficult than they should be. The basics are simple: I need a website and I need art, and then I have to combine the two. How hard can it be… But where do I get the art? Art school would be a good one, I’m sure students would love a place where they can sell their stuff. Must be good stuff though, I’m not going to sell everything they make.
But how about insurance, logistics (do I keep all the art in my house??), how do people pay etc etc.?
Well, I don’t have to start my gallery tomorrow, there’s a lot to think about and get sorted, but I must remember to not make it more difficult than it needs to be.
(But I’ve been thinking that it would also be nice to sell handmade stuff that doesn’t classify as ‘art’, how do I get that in there…?) 3 years ago


I’d sort of forgotten about this goal, but now I see it, with my ‘I want to be a creative professional’ glasses on I’m getting excited about this again.
Could start working this out, think about how I could do this (online)... 3 years ago

bloemthis would be nice

I started thinking about this today (although it has crossed my mind a couple of times before), wouldn’t this be nice? A place where I can sell both my own stuff as well as other cool art! Could be an online gallery, could be a real (real as in: a place where people can come in and see the work in real life) gallery. Would be amazing… Definitely something to keep in mind and possible work out in more detail on how to set something up. 5 years ago
