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 how to make Greek coffee


Entries from everyone

I told my mom about my interest in making my own Greek coffee and if she knew of a good store where I could go buy a new coffee cup set. Lo and behold, my mother whips out a cute little 12-piece set from a stuffed closet, and she even gives me a briki and a package of ground Greek coffee to boot! I’m all set! tomorrow I shall make my first ever Greek coffee. Metrio please! 2 years ago

I’ve been craving Greek coffee of late. I don’t know why, I always loathed the idea when I was younger, but I suppose that now that I have a more nuanced appreciation for the beverage in all its forms, I feel it’s time to get re-aquainted with my forefather’s beverage of choice. That and the fact that living so far away from home make me feel the need to reconnect with my roots. So, whenever I feel the urge to learn something new, my go-to resource has always been youtube. Yet again, the global internet video community did not fail. A nice Greek-American “yiayia” (grandma) who surprisingly looks a lot like my own mother, showed me the way. Here’s the link:

Next challenge: to actually find ground Greek coffee in this city, a briki and a Greek coffee set (there can be no compromise here!) to actually make some! 2 years ago
