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.

sweetlady40I LEARNT HOW TO PLAY THE GUITAIR WHEN I WAS 7

Right now, I can play guitar decently. I can’t pluck fast or do any fancy “widdlee widdlee wooow” solos (since that really isn’t my thing), but I do chords and some novice plucking or solos that sound nice :)
My dad taught me the basic “easy” chords, then I just relied on myself from there. After my fingers toughened up, I searched the internet for bar chords, power chords, etc.
So far, I’ve been playing the guitar for about 4 years. I think my ability to play the piano helped me a lot when I was learning guitar.
Well, I’m not as bored anymore and really love music and the guitar is awesome since you play anything on it! I can say this was definitely worth my time. :) 7 years ago


lexie_89Play Loud

I can play acoustic a little bit, but not decently.
my dad taught himself to play, so everytime I visit him, I ask him for help since Im trying to teach myself too. My mom, however, trashes me everytime she hears me. She’s always telling me that she wishes I would do something worth while and I sound the same as I did when I started. I want to play so good and loud that she and no one else will ever doubt what Im capable of again.
On a happier note, I also want to meet my most favoritest band, Relient K, and play along side them one day.
Peace to all the guitar or guitar-aspiring players. you rule. 8 years ago
