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.

We did it!

OMG finally! I totally forgot I even had this goal…I’ve been so busy the past year that I haven’t had time to come here and think about my goals. I’m almost 18 weeks along and we just found out we’re having a little boy!

The irony is, we had stopped trying. My husband was laid off last summer and we lost our benefits, so we moved home to Colorado, bought a house, and he started school to finish his degree. We were so focused on moving and meeting our school/work goals that we just kind of got pregnant in there by surprise.

I’m due October 7th, 2011…we can’t wait to welcome our little son to the world!

Our baby boy was born September 24, 2011. It’s been exactly a week, and I can’t remember what it was like to not have him here. He is such a joy. Tonight, my husband said to me that he was the best decision we ever made. I want to keep him in a bubble, just as he is, but I also can’t wait to see who he’ll become.


I want to:
