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.

Todd Schoonover will miss all his 43T friends

On January 30, wish Mrsrad a totally rad, happy at home birthday, complete with hugs, puppy dog kisses, and tons of photo opportunities!
Happy Birthday

Have you seen MrsRad’s photos? They are some of the most creative and envy inspiring images that I’ve seen shared here on 43Things. They make me want to remember to always have my camera with me for similar opportunities. The photo she shared today is a prime example of her talent. The timing of a silhouette photo like this is so crucial. There’s really only a few seconds when something like this can be captured, and yet she does it with apparent ease. Bravo MrsRad. Here are my wishes for her for the coming year:

May she always be pleased with her photographic efforts whether it’s shots of dogs or landscapes. May she make her health a priority by practicing yoga regularly and continuing to work toward losing 10% of her body weight (which will in turn help lower her blood pressure). And may she practice Reiki more, particularly on Kona when he’s having a seizure.


mrsrad is reengaging with the working world

Thank you so very much

Your words are so kind and so very much appreciated.

Todd Schoonover has gotten 7 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
