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.

raindropscrossword!

OK, I don’t do the crossword everyday but I do enjoy it and do it whenever I can, so that makes it a hobby!

I’m going to broaden my crossword reach to crosswords from different newspapers. 20 months ago

SpatzI found a nice hobby

Knitting!

Though I can’t knit at the moment because my sinus infection makes my RSI-addled hands hurt too much.

But I like knitting – and after I finish my mega-long scarf I’ll start knitting socks :D 2 years ago


SpatzKnitting ;)

It’s fun and relaxing and somehow meditative …
Interesting to see if my project will turn into a hobby.

I also would like to try crocheting and painting!

Sequanawhat to do?

I would love to have a hobby, that I would look forward to and that would bring me a joy.

My hobby should:
- be creative;
- make me do some manual work;
- connect me with a people;
- be transferable;

I´ve got a plenty of a short term hobbies since childhood. Most of them are already forgotten, but I´ll try to analyze, what did I like about them and whether I should continue in it again.

My “use-to-have” hobbies:
- playing piano – not a big success,I quit after two years and i still regret that :( Last year I bought a flexible piano, but I do not practice at all and probably I´ve forgotten even how to play Twinkle, twinkle little star…
- aquarium – I used to have aquarium with fish and turtles since childhood. I didn´t have a time for it during the university studies and had to give it away. I started this hobby again one year ago – and it makes me happy;
- collecting whatever – oh, I loved collecting when I was a child! I was collecting postcards, napkins, coins, cards, chewing-gum comics… Now I´m still a collector, but most of all I´m “collecting” books :)
- go fishing – well, my father use to make me go fishing with him when I was a child… I considered it really boring. Now I try to go with him fishing at least once a year and it is a great relax – because all I have to do is sit near the water and relax :)
- crocheting – I use to do this when I was a child, but now, when everything can be bought I just don´t know why to do it…I crocheted some small presents for my friends, but now I have no plan what to do..
- travelling? oh I love that a lot, but is it a hobby?
- watching series and movies? – I do that very often..
- surfing internet? :)

I know… what about cooking? or baking? or stain glassing? 2 years ago

SpatzKnitting

everybody suddenly talking about knitting.
I’m going to look this up, sounds lovely. 2 years ago


SpatzHa!

Sleeping doesn’t count, I’m afraid.
Wasting time on Facebook? Breathing? Procrastination?

on to something new, something fun (there’s a theme hidden here, I’m noticing now….)

What would I love to do? Paint? Write? Craft?
