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.

Celesta ThomasScones...Ahhhhhh- Homer J. Simpson

My mom has taken it upon herself to expand her culinary experience as well. Not that she knows about it though. For the past few days she has been attempting to make the perfect scones. From big to little, buttery to dry, with tea and with soup its been nothing but the white stuff. But hey im not complaining. When I used to think of scones my anime brain would go HMM… isn’t that the nasty biskcets that Arthur from hetalia keeps trying to shove down peoples pie holes? But dispite my otaku preconseption Ive been growing fond of the things and maybe next time I’ll help her out. 3 years ago

Daniela MillerAs a Celiac person...

Alton Brown’s my guru in this regard, but I haven’t had time or motivation to truly explore cooking. 9 years ago


I’m a decent cook but I’d like to push myself to experiment with new dishes instead of endless variations (or lack of) of the old stand-bys.

I’d also like to make an effort to experience the fine dining choices available in the area and sample different cuisines. 9 years ago
