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.

Taz15 months after I started and

3 months after Big one came home and it’s still not finished. But I’m determined for it to be ready when she comes home for Christmas as her dorm room is sooo cold she needs it. 12 months ago


I really need to get working on this. Big one comes home in 27 days! Yes that’s 27 days. :D 17 months ago

TazFeel like I'm getting somewhere with Wee one's

blanket but man it’s soooooo big! She’ll be able to wrap up her whole family in it when she’s grown up.
Think I need to get Big one to a wool shop pretty soon to chose what colours she wants in her blanket so I can get to work on it while she’s away for the year. Got to have that one finished for when she gets back and then leaves for Uni. 2 years ago

TazWas tidying up and found the bag with

wee one’s blanket that I started cough cough mutter mumble some time ago. I’m on the decrease now so I’m going to set aside a chunk of time each week to try and get this blanket finished – this year!

Then I can start on big one’s, as she is off to India for a year in August I will have a year to work on her’s until she gets back and then leaves for university (don’t cry Taz – stiff upper lip) I WILL have her blanket ready for her to take off to her Uni room! 2 years ago
