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.

Spread the word that "door hinge," in fact, rhymes with orange - kind of.

Why yes, I’ve done this years ago. How odd. 6 years ago


to be honest i think “door hinge” rhymes better with orange than “challenge” or “scavenge”...but maybe it’s just me

i’m now spreading the word via my msn name… the truth will out!!

If you say it with the right accent, you can totally do it. 6 years ago


You do know that door hinge doesn’t actually rhyme with orange, right?

But, just in case you need something…challenge and scavenge are two actual words that rhyme with orange. 7 years ago


My friends just told me I was wrong…boo. Some people just can’t accept the truth, I guess. 7 years ago


i’ve spread the word to quite a few people. some people just don’t get it. evs. anyways, i think this qualifies as doing this. 7 years ago


im thinking im going to make a shirt
preferably an orange one
with a door hinge on it or something
and then it will just say orange rhymes with doorhinge
either that or im going to do plain black and white words only
i cant believe i never noticed they rhymed.
whoever first did is a genious 7 years ago

change everythingI've informed innumerable people

It has been listed on my email signature for the better part of a month. I feel like I have done my part spreading the word. 7 years ago

change everythingorange: I just posted a bulletin on myspace

This means I have just reached approximately 61 people. Some of them are bands, yes, but at least one of those bands my husband runs the myspace for, so not all of them don’t count.

I will now post this little fact on the signature line of my email until the end of March. I will consider that a fairly good “spreading of the word.” 7 years ago

Silent_JThis is tha coolest!

At my school, they’ve all been informed that “door hinge” indeed rhymes with “orange”. It helps if you use it in a poem for English. I always spell it as one word- doorhinge. 7 years ago
