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.

All the equipment for b&w photography is in the loft, I just wonder with digital nowadays whether this will be something i’ll get round to? 2 years ago

sscad27have my own darkroom

I want to build my own darkroom and use it as a studio space for teaching others about traditional photography. 4 years ago

Hanna!I give up! -- Thanks for the 37 cheers!

While moving to my new apartment, I gave away all my darkroom equipment as we don’t have any dark rooms in this apartment, and I don’t see when I ever will have time to do anything anyway. I’m really into digital photographing right now, so I’m leaving this goal behind. 6 years ago

It would really depend on how badly I wanted it, how soon I got a better film camera, and whether or not photography is a hobby or a side business for me. 6 years ago


Probably won’t happen until I have a house, but still need to evaluate all that’s needed, the costs etc. That would be SO sweet :) 6 years ago

phlyersphanNew to darkroom and loving it!

I started getting into photography more seriously in early 2007 (Canon Digital Rebel XTi). Now I’m taking a 35mm film photography class at the local college. It includes a darkroom component (black and white photography), and I’m in love! I’d like to set up a home darkroom this year.

Good luck, everybody! :) 6 years ago


I’ve worked in a darkroom before but it would be cool to turn part of my bathroom into one. of course if i did this then my bathroom would smell like chemicals and then my mother would kill me. 6 years ago


I’ve switched to digital photography. 7 years ago
