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.

Go on an Alaskan Cruise

I don’t know why, but I’ve always loved snow and cold scenes. Fall and winter have always won out compared with spring and summer. Although this summer I have spent a lot of time actually enjoying the outdoors, so that pattern might change in the future.

Alaska! I’d love to see it. It’s probably so different from the rest of the states. Amazing wildlife too. Someday…


Hi, this is also one of my goals on 43P!

Hi, pretty lady, thanks for the cheer. As soon as the cheer goblin decides to get generous again, I will cheer you back.

We know friends who have gone on an Alaskan cruise and they say that the experience and scenery are amazing. I’m sure it would be a very memorable trip.

Good luck on this goal and all of your other goals that I just read. Talk soon. :))

that cheer goblin is so miserly!

Thanks for the note! So money and time off work are what are holding me back from my eventual Alaskan cruise. What’s holding you back?

By the way, loved the frog prince story you posted! :)

Thanks, lyriclover.

Yes, lack of money and time off sounds about right for me too. In time, we will go! :))


I want to:
