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.

I made the Rococoa cake a couple of weeks ago, and here’s the result! I might cut down on the sugar in the chocolate glaze and chocolate syrup next time, because I found the end result slightly too sweet. But it was a wonderful tiramisu like cake, I will definitely make it again. So 6 down, 4 to go! 6 years ago

Karen1983Already made 5

.. except for the Guinness, Meringue, old fashioned and Malteser cake. :-) 10 out of 14 cakes, and I already made 5: chocolate cheesecake, quadruple cake, orange chocolate cake (best recipe so far), café latté cake and chocolate chestnut cake. I think the next in line will be the coconut or ‘rococoa’ cake.. Maybe I will take a picture of it then. 7 years ago

Slightly FoxedOld Fashioned Chocolate Cake

Singularly unimpressive.

Maybe next time I’ll do it as a layer cake instead of a sheet cake, but at least I decorated it very well. 8 years ago

Slightly FoxedI'm so lame.

I intended to make the Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake for dinner with friends today, but ran out of energy.

Maybe this weekend. Then I can attempt to do some funky things with decorating too. 8 years ago

Slightly FoxedUntitled

...except the one with coconut.

I’ve done three of the ten(?), the best so far being the Guiness cake (now requested).

For the record, baking cakes from scratch isn’t as difficult as it seems. 8 years ago
