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.

JeffI've done it; She is good; I'm mentioning that right here; I doubt there is anything else I can do to coerce 43Things users to buy it, except

I may somehow find out who you are and where you live: Do you want to have to worry about that?

Christian love and compassion?! Grrr… 7 years ago

JakeBIt arrived!

I mean to savour it so I don’t want to rush the reading and try and mix the experience into my 16 hour weekdays.

However, I did read the first poem – Yellow Doors – and it was wonderful.

It captured just how I am feeling at present. Extremely aware of my own mortality and viewing death as something in the far distance, yet wanting to be always prepared for that moment and to treat every day as a mindful experience.

Very much looking forward to reading the rest. 7 years ago


But from, not because it costs a whopping £30+ at home!

I’m really looking forward to sitting in my comfy armchair with a fresh cup of coffee and reading all those fantastic poems. 7 years ago

MonotremeEvocative language

A beautiful and evocative collection of poems, from a beautiful and wise soul who resides part-time on 43T. 8 years ago

AnnieDeeWonderful poems!

Ruth’s poems are just like she is – sweet and beautiful. Reading them feels like Ruth were holding my hand, guiding me, pointing out beauty, gently pulling me along until we find meaning. 8 years ago

PattyTrishWonderful little book of poetry, Ruth!

I bought two, from Amazon, and today mailed one off to a friend in Dublin Ireland with the note: “A lovely book of poems for a lovely friend.” I am enjoying reading the other…though it may become another Christmas gift when I am done.

Congrats on writing it and having it published. I know my friend in Ireland will love it!


PS It is a great size for easy (and thrifty) mailing to others…. 8 years ago
