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.

drink more water (read all 4 entries…)
Just testing it out....

I have heard about how drinking more water (about 8 glasses a day) can do wonderful things for your hair, your eyes, your skin, your weight (eek!) and your overall health, so I have decided to try it out.

First things first, I need to find myself a water bottle that is washable and cute enough that I can carry it around with me in school and not feel like an idiot. I want to get one of those Victoria Secret “Pink” water bottles, because they are so cute, but I don’t know when I will be able to get down to the mall, so I will have to just use any old Nalgene I find around my house.

I’m really hoping to get this done, and most importantly, keep drinking water… I want to live a healthier lifestyle, and I think this is one way to get that done.



I want to:
