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.

find my faith
Found it?

I think I may have found a religion I fit under: Unitarian. There is a congregation in my town, which I didn’t expect. I’ve done some reading, and I like the sound of Unitarianism, the congregation sounds nice but I have never been to any kind of religious service before, I keep picturing myself sitting there surrounded by people decades older than me, fidgeting and nervous and mousey quiet hoping I won’t have to say anything.


I just don’t know.


marymoonshine is anyone else super bummed that 43things is shutting down? :-(


I’ve thought about going to a Unitarian Congregation before too. I really like their positive values and openness. I have the same worry as you, too! I think it might still be worth a try. I wanted to go to the Unitarian Church in the town I lived in before and I looked up the church here but I didn’t like their website… haha, that might be a very lame snap judgement to have made but it turned me off from wanting to go there.

Yeah same

On the website the pictures all show people in their fifties =s I think I’d be uncomfortable if I was the only twenty-something there! I don’t know if that’s shallow but I’d be much happier with varied ages…..
