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.

Or the cello, but the violin is more portable. I never learned a musical instrument and I love strings and also Sherlock Holmes plays the violin. 10 months ago

I think I’ve always wanted to do this 10 years ago bur just never did. I wonder where to start? Buy a violin? Yes but the thing is, I want to buy a left handed violin. :-)
So I guess the first thing to do is find a store. :-) 13 months ago

littlepeterpanA new beginning?

I’ve abandoned my violin for a long time, a year more or less. Last year was extremely hard on the university and the music school and I had no time to do anything apart from that (actually, I didn’t have enough time for those two either) – it was a busy year. This one may be busy as well, because I have to write my thesis, but I have far more pleasant schedule, only three days in the music school and Fridays off, which makes my weekends longer. Moreover, the friend of mine from the music school will probably be able to show me some stuff. I’m looking forward to it! :) 14 months ago


I’ve been playing the violin for my school orchestra for about 4 years :) 15 months ago
