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.

eat healthier
Not quite.

I go to the college that holds the title of 3rd best college food in the nation. Not great for healthful eating, however. I thought the freshmen 15 was always from alcohol. Well, I don’t drink, so HA, I figured I was exempt. No. I was wrong. I packed on the 15 before the end of first semester. This made me realize that I am eating less than healthfully. Is it my fault they have a sparkling array of desserts at all times of the day? No. Is it my fault for eating them? Hardly. I call it dessert propaganda. I need to start taking this healthy eating thing seriously. I will cry if I’m forced to move up a pant size. And come summertime, others will cry with the thought of me trying on swimsuits and modelling them for my friends in Macy’s.



I want to:
