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.

ClocksDeclaringThe front yard...

It’s so nice out today, how can I NOT sit outside???

Plus my pale winter legs need some sun. xD; 7 months ago

ClocksDeclaringI couldn't NOT take this picture.

I love clouds!

And it’s just fuckin’ gorgeous out today, man. 9 months ago

ClocksDeclaringBecause in smoggier areas--

You can’t find a sky this simple and pretty at the same time. :) 11 months ago


My mum and the pups hanging out watching Skyfall in the living room. :B 12 months ago


The cupcake shop in town. They do different flavors everyday, so it’s fun to just wander in randomly and see what they have. :3

Plus… It’s cupcakes. And they’re YUMMY. 13 months ago

Amy A#11 - Via the Boy's POV

This one my son snapped on an excursion with the girl while she was showing him around after he moved here. This is “Arizona falls” a man made feature near one of the local schools and an area that we consider “close to home.” 13 months ago

Amy A#10 - On the Way

home from an interview further up north in Scottsdale (walking to the bus stop), I saw this on the edge of the sidewalk. So, having managed to remember to put my camera in my backpack, I snapped a photo! 13 months ago


My mom has been getting work done on the house for awhile, and this is one of the new things. Before it was all pictures of the family across the wall, and the wall itself was more of an off white color. Now it’s a more simple idea with birds, and a light brown/tan color. Not sure where the photos are going yet… :)

Found it all at Hobby Lobby (minus the little wiener dog in the corner). 14 months ago

ClocksDeclaringNature at its simplest~

Poor little egg must have fell from the nest. D:

I would have picked it up to return it, especially since it was in one piece, but apparently after you touch them birds don’t want their eggs after that…

Wh-why mummy bird? That’s terrible. 3; 16 months ago


My mom collects masks. :3 She also has a large, wooden Aztec calendar on the wall of the living room. It’s very intricate and pretty. 17 months ago

ClocksDeclaringThis is me being smart-


Taking pictures while driving down the bypass on the way home from work… I do that (a lot) when I think the sky/clouds look pretty.

I’ve got problems. 18 months ago

ClocksDeclaringEnter at your own risk!

I have this hanging in the doorway of my bedroom. :3

It’s been hiding and collecting dust since I got it years ago, and finally I got the idea to use it as a ‘door’ for my room. I think it looks kinda cool. :D

Edit:: Trying to do this from my phone is stupid. Ha-ha. So hopefully I’ll eventually get the picture to attach…
Attached, but now sideways, ha~ 2 years ago

Taken in mid summer. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats Water tower (11/43)

One of two in town. This one is located on the northwest edge of town. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats Local City Park Play Area (10/43)

They have an older play area down the street that is fenced in. These are the more updated play equipment that in spite of being newer are still showing their age. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats Railroad Crossing (9/43)

The main entrance into town features a railroad crossing and an electronic sign. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats Photo taken from a side street (6/43)

On Thursday, the annual festival began with an auction of hams made by kids in either FFA or 4 H. The grandstand is set up here for contests and performances put on during the three days of the festival. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats Main Street Looking South (5/43)

The festivities were in full swing last night during the annual fall festival in town. This is a view of what it looks like from one end of the street looking South. The ferris wheel is at the farthest end of Main Street but can still be seen from this viewpoint if you look hard enough and know what to look for. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats Ferris Wheel (4/43)

I took this photo of the ferris wheel on Wednesday while the carnival was being set up for the annual fall festival in town. I believe they set up the ferris wheel in the same spot every year. It was at this same location last year. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats The Old "Hall" or Castle (3/43)

This old building has seen a lot of action over the years since it was built in the early 1920s. It has been a meeting hall for various organizations, a restaurant, a youth center as well as sat empty and neglected as often. Currently, it is being revived as a antique mall and flea shop by it’s newest owner. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats The choo-choo train at the city kiddie park (2/43)

It isn’t often the this train remains idle. Usually it becomes the center of attention at the city park just down the street where I now live. 2 years ago

Collectorofcats I'm thinking of beginning over on this goal (Picture 1/43)

I didn’t really post very many picture before I moved and I’m thinking there are lots of interesting things to photograph in my new town of residence. I’m starting with this photo. It is the Kansas City Southern Roundhouse (although it isn’t actually round) at the intersection of Front Street and Main Street in Slater, Missouri. 2 years ago

Shine has a barista that makes consistently great coffee 2 years ago

Tony, the Bald EagleOriental Parade

The bay looks amazing as the fountain spots the water straight up which is unusual given Wellington’s windy reputation. 2 years ago
