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.

don't pull my hair for 45 consecutive days (read all 124 entries…)

really great to have you back pullgirl!

really thought i was getting it this time… like always i guess. is such a great and horrible site.
if i knew how addicted i would be i probably would not have gone on. but if i knew how enlightened i would be by it, i probably would have gone on anyway.

hugely important french quiz tomorrow. have i started studying in the slightest? no.

each hair i pull makes me want to stop even more and to want this even more. can i stop? no. what the hell??!


Born of Stardust dances the line between two worlds...

Our stories are strangely similar!!

I often fall off track and need to start again (and get sidetracked from studying for French quizes…), but you can do it!! I can do it too! We both can and I am rooting for you!!! :D

Lisa is thanking 43 things for 7 great years!

I am starting all over tomorrow myself, you can do this!
