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.

baileys_truffleSplurge a ridiculous amount of money on something equally ridiculous

So I bought tickets for a concert a couple weeks ago… unfortunately I got caught up in the thrill of the purchase and spent an extortionate amount on a single ticket which I massively regret.

Tickets, werent really what I meant when I added this to the list, Im always really sensible when it comes to money and savings which is what inspired me to put it down in the first place but I was going more for… I dont know, a mummified unicorn or michael jackson’s glove or something really bizarre.

Ah well, I wont be buying anything unnecessary for a while now… unless someone wants to buy my ticket! ;) 14 months ago

baileys_truffleWatch a film under the stars

So a couple days ago they we’re screening Avengers Assemble in a local park… and I got to go!!

It was during the evening so the stars got to make an appearance, and although it was cold and I forgot to take food, it was definitely worth experiencing. Not sure I’d rush to do it again though… cinemas are just too cosy for that. :) 17 months ago

baileys_truffleRead a daunting classic: Anna Karenina

The release of the film really encouraged me to pursue this one a little bit more especially as it stars Keira Knightley.

Im so glad I did as it is a wonderful book i have trouble putting into words. Tolstoy is a master storyteller and painted every aspect of this novel you could possibly imagine. It was so complex and meticulous, showing love in all its glory and sorrow.

By the end I felt I had lived through society and had fallen in love with Anna herself… highly recommended. The film also! :) 2 years ago

baileys_truffleBake cakes for friends as gifts

So its my friends birthday in a couple days so I decided Id make her a few cupcakes, especially as she’d never tasted my baking before.

The idea was to do some really fancy ones, and I found loaddss of recipes but as I wasnt 100% sure of her favourite, I played it safe and made some vanilla and some triple chocolate.

Will definitely make this a habit, they went down a treat… I hope the rest of my friends love cakes! :) 2 years ago

  9. Go to a festival (recently done but not sure if it counts)
  10. Go abroad
  11. Try sushi
  12. Read a daunting classic (Don Quixote/Anna Karenina/Gone with the Wind/Bleak House/Les Miserables)
