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.

CornflakegirlJust a short course as introduction

This month I will enrol a web design course as an introduction. Let’s see if I like it. 2 years ago

PagipopoGetting started

I know I need to learn HTML. How important is it to learn CSS and XTML? 3 years ago

jwuHTML & CSS first, then PHP..& etc.

I’m a recent college graduate currently job hunting for a graphic design position. It’s frustrating since there isn’t anything out there because of the economy…so I’m learning web design. I’ve got a website design nailed down. On the other hand, I don’t know that much coding. A well designed website is nothing without functionality.

The graphic design industry is always changing..which is shifting more towards web. Coding is like learning a different language…but I think it’s worth it and more rewarding when you take the time for yourself to learn it. It just takes a lot of time and patience to comprehend.

I’m planning to keep going despite how much I loathe it right now haha. :) 3 years ago

I’m learning more about wordpress now. I think this is the best direction. I’ve created a blog for Starland and and a online guitar teaching website using wordpress. There’s more to learn. 4 years ago

aaiken721kinda sorta forgot

this got put on the back burner before i was really able to dig in (due to time spent on trying to start my own business…which also went under :-( ). Hope to email one of my managers today to see what i could do to have the company i work for pay for some training, maybe on or something.

i really should open up those books i purchased a while back though. 6 years ago
