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.

stagebunnyI joined a wine group.

It’s a new group on I hope to make the next meeting this Wednesday. I’ll let y’all know how it goes. 6 years ago

stagebunnyHalf-Priced Bottles!

Every Wednesday at Sassafras they have half-price bottles of wine. This way, I can explore new labels and still have half a bottle to take home. Yay! 7 years ago

stagebunnyI lost my I.D.

I can’t buy wine, So my ex-bf brought me a bottle of El Bastardo (I would make a comment on the irony, but hey, he brought me wine!). It went lovely with needlepoint and sci-fi on tape. 7 years ago

stagebunnyRuffino 2004 Il Leo

This was amazing with penne al vodka. I even saved the label to start a wine journal. I highly suggest it! 8 years ago

kellygoFernleaf 2004 Sauvignon Blanc

Pretty good! But also a little weird. 8 years ago

kellygo Pescevino blu

I’m going to stop buying wine because of the label. That really, really doesn’t work. 8 years ago

kellygoIl Bastardo

Bought also because of the label. Meh. 8 years ago

kellygoRed Flyer

I bought it mostly because it has a cool label, but it does not suck. 8 years ago

stagebunnyQuality, not quantity

When I open a bottle of wine at home, I generally don’t drink more than a glass ot two. More often than not, over half a bottle of wine goes bad before I can drink it. Therefor, I am going to start buying splits of higher-end wines. It’s better to put the money in a smaller quantity of a better wine than in cheap wine I won’t even finish. 8 years ago

stagebunnyInspired by Bil...

I was so focused on champagne, I couldn’t see the bigger picture. But now I do. 8 years ago
