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.

Do the Super Fling Boogie! (read all 5 entries…)
It's too embarrassing to post how many

garbage bags we probably threw out. Especially, considering we’d brought this stuff across the country at least a couple of times.

I mean, it could easily be a busload. I mean an actual busload. And still we could do more. And will.


hey i applaud you!

and it shouldn’t be embarrassing but liberating! you are doing something that many people are not able to do. be glad you are doing it! i know i am thrilled for you :D

the management wishes to assure those viewers out there she is a recovering ‘pack rat’ and is slowly getting over the need to ‘keep things because i can use it’ syndrome. management is also recovering from the subsequent addiction to cheese and cheese products that seems to be a symptom of ‘pack-rat-itis’

the management admits to eating cream cheese the other day and has no remorse despite facing the cheese addiction

management implores viewers to keep ‘dirty rat’ commentary to themselves… unless of course it is funny. then you have to share the commentary on pain of something scary
