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.

bowl a 200 game (read all 4 entries…)

Kinda got into bowling again, although it’s strange that the more I bowl, the lower my average gets. 0_0 Anyway, I’m on a league again and have gotten my bowling ball redrilled. sigh unfortunately my average is a 115 and I have an incredibly long way to go before I bowl a 200


Keep it up man. I used to bowl a lot of 110s. Sometimes 90s if it’s a really REALLY bad night.

It takes a LOT of time & devotion to get REALLY good. Bowling in two leagues Monday & Friday helps me out a great deal. Sometimes we practice Wednesday so that’s THREE straight days of Bowling.

I just got back from a game a while ago. Got TWO 145 games and a nice 172 game! Keep practicing. It’ll happen for ya!

Thanks for the encouragement! I started spinning my bowling ball now (I used to bowl straight). I may be getting a reactive ball soon…
My brother bowled his first 300 game today! It was pretty exciting.
