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.

read all the Harry Potter books (read all 3 entries…)
Only the final book to go...

Only one to go and I’ve completed the series. Very excited to see who dies :) If Harry dies I won’t be happy!!


You must let us know how you feel about it, then, when you’ve finished! ;)

Oh NO!!!

Tiffany have you read it?!? Are you trying to tactifully prewarn me???? Does Harry DIE!!! Oh God the stress!!! ;)

A girlfriend I work with has bought the book, and says that when she reads it I can have it as she doesn’t have any of the others and just wanted to read the last one (I know! I tried to tell her she should read them in order but she woudln’t have it). Lovely thought other than the fact I want to read it RIGHT NOW and she’s such a slow reader!!!! LOL – never mind shouldn’t be long now!

Yes- to the first one, at the very least. ;)

That’s crazy! One can’t just read the seventh book alone and truly appreciate it! I must now go fume in my indignation. :P

LOL! It’s alright, just hang on! It’s worth the wait! ;)

So how are you coming with reading the final book??
It is well worth the read if you have not started. If you have finished what are your thoughts???

Still waiting.......

Still waiting for my friend to finish with the final book (she’s giving me her copy as she doesn’t want it after she’s read it). It’s killing me LOL – I’d have read it in 2 nights!
Love your picture Happywithme – off to Bali in 2 weeks, and thats exactly what I’m hoping for!

The most beautiful hotel – this shot was from the beach – the blue lines at the bottom are the ends of our lounge chaises. Wishing you an excellent holiday :)
