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.

what I did or do again (read all 422 entries…)
Untitled

1. Watching the tennis at Queens
2. Watching the Trooping of the Colour for the Queens birthday.
3. Going and swimming 3k
4. Bought my dad a fathers day card, I was looking and there were a few people – I picked up one and it said something like for a super cool dad I put it back saying ‘Well no one is going to believe that’ they turned and looked at me. lolz. So just bought a £1 card and a £40 bottle of whisky – he wont drink it. To be honest it’d be a worry if he did but yea he makes it awkward to care.
5. There’s a bit of rain.
6. I’ve just become rather depressed again

Dear Mr J Swale

I appreciate your honesty, but now I am left in the rather tricky position of having to reconsider our friendship. How could I possibly fractionise (oh wrong word) with the enemy?

Your,
Ms E.Mu

PS Do you have any other unfortunate political beliefs I should be aware of?

Dear Ms. Hugh Jazz

I do indeed believe that may be the wrong word, especially as it essentially means to split into factions. You probably were thinking of the word flirt.
Nope not unfortunate political beliefs, sorry to disappoint you.

Dear Mr J Swine

Yes, that was indeed what I meant. I’d hate to divide your Marmite camp into yet smaller fractions.

Where do you stand when it comes to scones with jam and cream? is it the jam or the cream first?

When you make a pot of tea, do you pour the milk first into your china cup or the tea?

Yours,
Ms Feathery Floozy

Dear Ms. Os Trich

I thought it would be a more pertinent word.
Well to cut straight through your Gordian knot of a question – no cream for me.
Tea first although we could have a pot of tea and scones. Although hold off with the marmite.

Yours,

Mr A. Wesome
