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.

worst experience of my entire life

megan was really sweet and cooked dinner for me on monday night.. it was CHEESE ravioli and PARMA ROSA sauce.. a deadly combo for my stomach.. i had planned on just being like i have to go get something outta my car and then u know.. making myself feel better.. well that would have been nice but then i had to pee.. so i broke my personal code and for the first time probably ever went to the bathroom in someones house.. lalala no problem right? WRONG. the toilet did not flush. i died. right there. then i freaked out and about 1.5 mins later i told meg.. well she kinda guessed cause i was too embarrassed to speak.. i actually broke into a sweat from being so gosh darn nervous.. so she got me a plunger but it was a crappy one and after i would plunge it wouldnt pop back out.. it didnt unclog.. so i went and told meg and i was freaking out and she was like no whatever its no big deal and she went and got her mom and said it was her.. and her mom got it unstuffed.. it was a terrible experience though.. so hysterical to hear the two of them in there laughing at the situation though.. cause meg knew i was laughing and her mom just had no idea.. it was funny



I want to:
