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.

deco_dahliaPick it up again

I played Violin in the 4th grade. Around 25 years old I got the craving to play again, and maybe work my way to a cello. You know, start with something familiar first, right? My wonderful parents bought me a violin for Christmas that year, and I can’t for the life of me remember how to play it. I know how to hold it very well, but not how to play it. 6 years ago


I’ve played for about six or seven years now but I don’t have the time to play at home and I’ve been told I’m really good… 7 years ago

JennI suck at this

I actually got out my violin to play today. I forgot how much I sucked at it. Well, I know my D string needs to be replaced… and I think maybe my bow aswell. I have an extra set of strings, but I don’t think I’ll ever get around to replacing the bow.

I don’t think this is ever gonna get completed. 8 years ago

JennI wanna play again!

I played the violin for about a year and a half (5th grade and a couple months in 6th grade), but got frustrated with it since everyone in my classes had started in 3rd or 4th grade and I couldn’t catch up. I’ve held onto my violin over the years (and I think even the book from 5th grade) and I want to learn again at my own pace. 8 years ago
