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.

Beat my depression (read all 371 entries…)
Now in MY apartment.

And at last, my Internet is up and running!

Everything’s here. I moved everything I own. I spent some time at the grocery store and now have a kitchen full of food. I have all my bed sheets and linens, all my clothes, and hot coffee in the morning if I want. I can make breakfast, lunch, dinner; I can take a bubble bath, play music, light candles and relax. I have a wonderful, fabulous, brand new place to call home.

My commute is shorter and easier. I greet the day and just walk across the street and get on the train to the city. I don’t have to drive anymore except occasionally. I love how the train station is small and convenient and right in the center of this quiet little neighborhood. I’m doing it all on my own, paying for everything with my own money, and am totally self-reliant.

I am very happy. Everything’s working out this time. I finally feel in control of my life, like, at the helm of a great vessel that has weathered many storms.

Dead7and_Dreaming hoped the robots would come to their senses in vain

But seriously, I’m glad you’re feeling better!


I want to:
