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.

I did an English Literature degree and loved it. I would love to go back to uni, either by distance learning or going back to uni. A touch expensive but would be brilliant. 6 years ago

I’m going to get a masters degree in English because I want to be a script writer for video games 7 years ago

shellprestoI wish I could say it's for a love of literature...

...In actuality, I want a job that pays more.

I love reading and discussing books, it just sort of comes naturally to me. I’m deterred by the price, scared even, but I think that grad school is my best option right now. 9 years ago


Reading and writing have always been my first passion. I want to get a masters and teach English on the community college level. I already have an idea for a thesis. This is something i have to find a way to do. 9 years ago
