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.

EmorpWhy do I want to do this exactly?

I like singing them well enough. And I like improvising tunes over the top of others. Who doesn’t? Writing one. What does it represent? People who write them just do it, all the time, with their scribbled lyrics and dictaphones. I spend no time on this at all.
I played with GarageBand when it first came out. Did three tunes from loops then stopped. I clearly do not have the appetite. 18 months ago


EmorpProcrastination

Good title for the song I may never get round to writing.
Plus the tune, by default, has to be the 80s one that is now going through my head, altho I can’t remember the name:
Procrastination
Will make a man of you
Procrastination
Will bluh bluh dogs breath too (not sure on the words there)
Procrastination
Will make a
Man
Of
You-oo

If anyone knows what song I might have been thinking of do let me know. 3 years ago
