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.

Lynnaii should stop procrastinating

Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful. (read all 12 entries…)
April 23, 2008

~ I’m grateful that some of my teachers from last quarter have not forgotten who I am (like most of my previous teachers are prone to do).

~ I’m grateful that my parents are always so relieved to hear from me when I call them before I call them just to check in (late classes).

~ I’m grateful for striking up more conversations with classmates, even if they’re short and/or leading nowhere. It’s a step to breaking out of this newly formed shell I have on and it is a step to getting to know more people and expanding my social circle, which is another goal of mine!

~ I’m grateful that I’m from Hawaii because it makes a good conversation-starter.

~ I’m grateful for good music I can listen to while studying!


newvanessa is finally feeling like herself

Lynnaii has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
