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.

Who’s want to be in my anime 4 months ago


I went to IkkiCon today.. I actually had a pretty good time, even though I’m not so much into anime anymore. It was awesome to see everyone’s elaborate costumes, taking pictures with the ones I recognized, checking out the local artists. I only got to go for one day and not the whole weekend unfortunately, but I did get to go to a presentation about Christian imagery in anime and I saw the premiere of the English dub of Robotics;Notes and sat in a Q&A with the voice actors. I probably wouldn’t do it again, like I said I’m not a huge fan of anime, but it was a great experience all-in-all. 11 months ago

ChuwyMy tribute to anime

It should be fun 2 years ago


They’re just so much fun! Go with just one friend or a group of people and your sure to have a blast. Just make sure the person you bring along also likes anime, or it might not be so fun after all xD 4 years ago

TefferThis autumn!!

I’m going to Zenkaikon, an anime convention in Pennsylvania, this autumn. It’s in November, sometime on a weekend, usually. It’s usually a two-day span. I tried going last year, but it fell through, and blehh. It was a mess! But this year, I’m going to go FOR SURE!!! [: 4 years ago


I love making and wearing costumes, and anime conventions are perfect for those. So why have I never been to a convention? I don’t know! 4 years ago


I’ve never been. I really want to go… That would be the BEST DATE EVA! 5 years ago

That’s how old I would be in November of 2005 when I went to my first anime convention, MTAC (Middle Tenn Anime Convention).


My friend and I were screwing around New Years Eve and a friend in the VA world told her that he’d be at MTAC. We didn’t even know that we in Tenneessee had an anime convention. It was a cheep prereg and only a 4 hour drive! :D

Then that September, we went to AWA in Atlanta Georgia. I didn’t have as much fun there as I did at MTAC, but I think that’s because we progressed from a small con to a big con too quickly. 5 years ago
