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.

willowtandraI looked at them

today. That’s progress…right? Just have to give myself some classical conditioning and maybe tomorrow I’ll touch them :) 6 years ago


I guess I could complete this goal when I work on my clean house goal. I’ve got a pile of ironing that needs to be done, so if I pin the edges of my cloths, I can just iron them right along with the rest of the clothes I have to iron, then I’d have two things done. 6 years ago


Altar cloths are functional for me. There is nothing symbolic about them. Pretty much they are there to add color to the altar if needed, look pretty, and protect my table from wax and ash. I bought a couple different colors of cheap satin (on sale…yay!), and some of that iron on hemming stuff. I’ve never used it before, but I hear people swear by it. I’m also going to buy some white and black cotton. Just to have some basic everyday use stuff. In the future, when I get good at this iron on stuff and beading, I’m going to make some fancier cloths. I’ll hem the edges and sew on some beaded fringe. I think it will really change the look of the altar, and I might even add some symbolism to the beads. Maybe holiday colors or something. I’ve had the material for awhile, I hope adding this to the list will give me motivation to finish it. 7 years ago
