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.

Done done and done :D 7 years ago


The two books I read on holiday in Hungary went home with my travelling companion ;) 7 years ago


A month behind again and again not a send out but more a pass over. Gave Cecilia Ahern’s A Place Called Here to a friend at work who is currently working her way through all Ahern’s books. 7 years ago


Gawd I’m so far behind on this goal :(
Anyway another 3 books handed over. I’m not marking each one for a single month because they all went to one person and I refuse to make this goal easy for myself :p I’m so nice to myself aren’t I? 7 years ago

Taz2 totally random for August

Yes I know I’m still running a month behind on this but today I got to do August :D
And why is it totally random? Well I’ll tell you, I have a box of books waiting to find homes and then I discovered my friend A was looking for something to read. So what kind of friend would I be if I didn’t offer a look in the box? Exactly so she did and she took 2 home. But I wasn’t here when she did so I dont’ know which 2 she took but hey that’s the fun of RABCK no? 7 years ago

TazThree for July

A friend from work who is a big reader was moaning that she has nothing to read. So I invited her round to peruse my available pile and off she toddled with 3 of them. :) 7 years ago

TazBy my reckoning I'm 4 books behind so

today I finalised some RABCK and now one will be The Little Lady Agency will be winging it’s way to Camis as soon as I can get to the post office and The Wendy House will be off to Antheras. :D 7 years ago


Some months I have given a number of RABCK so does that negate the fact that I’m 4 months behind? I guess the whole point of me setting myself this goal was to do a RABCK for each month so I better catch up with myself quick smart. Off to Cliff’s Wishlist I go. 7 years ago


I’m late getting my April RABCK book out but If You Could See Me Now by Cecelia Ahern is being sent out.
I really need to get my bum into gear with my goal for sorting out my tbr pile then I can sort out my pile of books that need releasing too. In fact maybe it’s time to bring out my clear off the desk goal yet again :/ 7 years ago


Gave a bag full of books to a Mum at swimming class today. We had a lovely conversation about books the other week and she said she was always on the look out for new books. So for my RABCK this month I thought I would pass some of mine to her. 7 years ago


Bugger just realised that tomorrow is the last day of the month and I’ve yet to send a RABCK out :/
Aaahhh 7 years ago


2 books off to garibaldisghost

1 is a trade for a book he sent me but the second is a suprise for him. :) 7 years ago

TazInspiration struck

thanks to my lovely fellow bookcrosser/43thinger Camis. And the need to free up some space in my wee house. So I’m setting myself the target of sending out at least one RABCK each month of 2007.
Wish me luck. 8 years ago
