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.

Agent 99 you gotta be fresh.

Start dating again in March! (read all 9 entries…)
Oh god! Do I really have a love goal? Yes I do.


Ok, February 11th it’ll be one full year since I ended it with the ex. For better or for worse.

And I’ve just been shell shocked and not feeling great about this.

But I need to get over it.

So on February 1st I will sign up for OK Cupid. Or something like that. And I will force myself to at least go out for coffee with some guy because it will probably be nice and I don’t think I need to be Mopey McSadPants for the rest if the year.

I see no stigma in online dating

I think I’m a wee bit scared of rejection and so a little antsy about diving in, but I know I’ll get over it one I’m actually out and about meeting people.

I’m so happy you’ve found a good fella! <3


I want to:
