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.

AnnaFlaky Scones

These didn’t turn out as good as I’d hope, but I was also working with very inferior materials. I was using a pop bottle as a rolling pin, since I foolishly left mine at home, and I’m at a friend’s house.

But, they were a lot of fun to make, and my friend, who is a scone person (I am not) says they’re quite good. Yay! I’ll definately try making them again. 9 years ago

AnnaButter Dipped Buns

Today I made a dozen butter dipped buns. I will admit to finding the recipe a tad confusing – the initial part said it made 12, but during the recipe it said 24. Oh well. I did 12, they turned out well, and are being consumed with relish as I type this.

Must try them with honey next time. 9 years ago

AnnaCornbread Muffins

Made cornbread muffins today. They whip up quite fast, and everyone else seemed to like them. I found them a tad dry. Probably would have been better with butter. I made them with blueberries by request, I think next time I’ll try them without. 9 years ago

AnnaBlueberry Muffins

I tried the Blueberry muffin recipie today. Yum! It had lemon zest in it, and trying to zest the lemon was an adventure. Plus, I had to buy muffin tins. I thought I had them, but I guess not.

Oh soooooo good! I swear, it’s the lemon zest. The blueberries were an afterthought.

I think this leaves 148 more recipies to try! 9 years ago

AnnaBook bought

Well, it would be more correct to say a friend bought me the book.

I now have in my hot little hands The Bread Bible, which I have fallen madly in love with. It’s full of explicit details and lovely illustrations, and the final recipe in the book is chocolate filled croissants. Can’t go wrong with that.

Today I made the first loaf of Sandwich bread. It melted in my mouth with yummy goodness. 9 years ago
