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.

MalcIt take two to tango

Love the intensity and passion of these two as they gaze into each others eyes. 7 years ago

CitrineDreamWonderful EYEdea

I’m sorry, I had to use the pun, but this is such a great idea!!! I am always attracted to eyes and if I were to pick a favorite part of myself, that would probably be it. I’ve also wanted to get into a little photography, so this is the perfect way! I need to get started! 7 years ago

sweet_kohatIm looking female for friendship

HI females

Thanks 8 years ago

MalcWho is this blue eyed mystery girl ?

Thats for me to know and you to guess !! 8 years ago

MalcThe First

Was digging round my pictures yesterday and found what was probably the first portrait shoot I did. All done in very soft focus but these must have been my first shot of beautiful eyes.

If you would like to add yours to this project then please contact me. 8 years ago


Slightly more than just the eyes but they still provide the focal point. Took this shot of my colleagues daughter & grandaughter. I like the way both eyes are closed as they enjoy the precious love that each brings to the other. 8 years ago

MalcDark & Mysterious ...

... with a subtle hint of naughtiness. 8 years ago

MalcSquirrel Hunter

Although SH has fabulous blue eyes I liked this B&W shot the best. I’m so pleased with this shot because it’s my first American eye.

Please form an orderly queue if you would like to be next !! 8 years ago

MalcI been thinking ...

... I wonder what will happen when a guy that hunts eyes meets a girl that hunts squirrels ?? Tomorrow I gonna find out cos I’m meeting up with Squirrel Hunter AND Scribbles and the three of us are off to Hever Castle.

Dont tell them but they are soon gonna be famous, or at least their eyes will be lol. 8 years ago

MalcMalc needs help !!

This goal is so not happening at the moment, although I gonna steal Squirrel Hunters eyes when she in the UK next week.

I guess linked with this is my constant quest to find people to photograph. I love doing portrait shoots but it frustrates me that I cant find people to sit for me. There must be so many people that would like a nice photo of themselves.

If you are one of them then please let me know !! 8 years ago

MalcI need to find some more

I knew this would be a challenge but no more lined up at the moment and that is bugging me. As the teachers often wrote on my school report … “must try harder” 8 years ago


I’ve known Ashleigh for a long time and she’s one of those people who has a natural beauty on both the outside and the inside. Only right that her eye should be included. 8 years ago

MalcA Child's Eye

Did a photoshoot yday of my friends little girl and her eye was just so so cute. 8 years ago

MalcMystery Eye

Male ? Female ? I wonder who this can be ? 8 years ago


This is my second eye from people I’ve met on 43t. Bruno is a great guy and well worth meeting up for a beer.

His eye was taken around 10pm after a few beers but as you will see not a hint of bloodshot. 8 years ago

MalcOne for the ladies

As I said this is about photographing beautiful eyes which means there’s also room for male eyes. Meet Nik and ok girls wouldn’t you just die for those eyelashes ? 8 years ago

MalcTalking to Jiana

And she suggested that I also look for eyes from around the world representing different people, places, countries, cultures.

So far I’ve got an arab eye, an english eye and a peruvian eye. All beautiful in their own way and I’m gonna be looking for volunteers to extend the scope around the world. 8 years ago


Fabulous girl working in Cusco, Peru who asked if I would take some portraits of her. This eye shot would sit proud in any portfolio. 8 years ago

MalcA friend

This eye belongs to a friend, sadly I’ve not seen her for at least 18 months.

Beautiful ? I think so … but maybe you should judge. 8 years ago

MalcAnd this is how it all began ...

The photo that inspired this goal, and a big thank you to Jiana. 8 years ago

MalcGotta start somewhere

This seems to have captured the imagination and I’m already getting volunteers so think maybe I’ve have to start compiling a list, here goes …

1) Trauma Junkie
2) Serenity
3) Flirt (not sure she volunteered !!)
4) The Sunshine Kid
5) Rodrugg Lovs Me More Than You

And I also started thinking about some people I will send an invite to …

1) Jess
2) Danielle
3) Roux & Luvmyseth
4) Loquacious Lass
5) Rob (yep blokes too)
6) Paul Nelson (and ya couldn’t get a kinder set of eyes)
7) MaryJo
8) Venusian
9) Violet Dreamer
10) Bex
11) Calypte
12) Somtac

So many more … and think I’ll leave it there cos could get frustrated by the fact some of these folk are on the wrong side of the pond but maybe that is part of the challenge ?? 8 years ago

MalcThe Challenge

This must be a first … a goal that was driven by demand

So then I’m looking for volunteers, but will also be sending out some invites as soon as I get a spare 5 mins.

Inspired by Jiana (without even realising), labelled by Jess, flirted by Flirt, encouraged by Serenity, and confirmed by Trauma Junkie, I have accepted the challenge to take 43 photos of 43 beautiful eyes. This is gonna be a lot of fun because I really do need to think about some creativity here.

In the meantime let me know if you are interested. 8 years ago
