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.

List 43things I am grateful for or making me smile (read all 3 entries…)
My Late Spiritual Teacher

She is the one who inspires me to take “hahaplant” as my screen name, which means “a sunny, happy, smiling plant.” She had that magic power to make people laugh and feel loved around her. One day, I went to her house, crying over something really stupid my lover said to me. After comforting me, she saw smile again on my face. So she said, “Keep smiling, even when things are difficult. If you do that, blessings will come your way. When you smile, you make everybody so happy.” That night, I discovered 43things and named myself “hahaplant,” hoping that I can remember her teaching.
