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.

Working hard

on this. My house is listed, which I have to admit freaks me out just a bit, now that the time has really arrived. We started construction on this place 16 years ago, and I’ve never lived anywhere for such a long time.

I have 7 places bookmarked that might be possibilities of places to move to, and we just need to find time to look at them all and decide what we really want to do. 2 bedroom condo or 5 bedroom older home near the river bike path and nearly everything else? Which city & state?

The people who went through our house yesterday sounded fairly serious, but no offer yet. It’s nice to be in a situation where we don’t have time constraints or school districts to worry about. But I still wish we were making the jump to CA now. :)


DoubleN has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
