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.

learn to cook gluten-free

I make these with gluten (and eggs and milk) all the time, but for the first time I tried to make them without any of that. I failed miserably, but at least I know what doesn’t work! The idea of using an all purpose flour is appealing, but I think there were probably a few flours in it that affected the flavour a little more strongly than I’d hoped for. I’ll just need to try some experimenting and hope it works eventually. 2 years ago


I haven’t had a chance to use it, being at school and otherwise busy, but I have a cookbook! I was ridiculously excited. It’s called the Autism Cookbook by Susan K. Delaine and it has some fabulous looking things in it, most of which are staples and good for bounce boards. Since it’s aimed towards parents (not girlfriends of people who can’t have gluten, lactose or eggs), they’re not as fancy as I’d like so I’ll have to expand, but it’ll do for now. I can’t wait to try out some of them. 2 years ago

When you are close to people who can’t have gluten, you kind of need to know how to feed them. I’m in that boat. I’ve made only one specifically gluten-free dish. Ever. Now it’s time to learn more. So far I’ve started with reading some blogs to understand more about how it works, plus I’ve been skimming lists and asking around to understand some basic things that are or aren’t GF. I can’t make anything fancy, only some super basic bits and pieces, but everyone has to start somewhere. 2 years ago
