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.

procrastinatressGot my tickets!

I have my plane tickets and got in touch with almost everyone I plan to visit in Europe this spring. I’m really starting to get excited. The Russian classes are fun. 4 years ago


Talked to a bunch of friends… signing up for Russian classes… planning a trip to visit B. and a few other friends over there later this year. Got my shots, need to look for plane tickets. I’m so excited! A little freaked out, too. It’s been a while since I went on a trip this far away. I’m getting old, LOL4 years ago


Had a nice dose of Europe yesterday when my friend B. came to visit on his tour across the States. It was so much fun just talking and laughing together :o) I look forward to visiting him, maybe next year! 5 years ago

One of my favorite French singers… and his CD’s have been buried in boxes for ages. It was time to get them back out. Oooh the goosebumps :o)
Never heard of him? Check him out:
or, for more in-depth info:

I do believe JJG’s music is most enjoyable to those who understand the words… though I’m willing to bet there are a few songs that would please even those who don’t understand French (La-bas; On ira; Il suffira d’un signe; Rouge). 8 years ago

procrastinatress44 Leningrad

Haven’t listened to these guys in ages (well, not since I was a teenager). A German band, they play “Russian speed folk.” If you can’t imagine what that might sound like, visit and check out the mp3’s.

Listening 44L now I can still understand why I loved their music back then, though nowadays I find it slightly annoying. I do enjoy the instruments; not so sure anymore about some of what’s sung. Guess I’m getting old ;o) 8 years ago
