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.

Dear Dad

Were you watching today..from heaven’s view, as the little girl, you never met…beamed her 8 year old smile…
I have this still frame in my mind today, that I will probably never forget, her dressed in her baseball uniform, for her first game..Her pony tail hanging out the back of her baseball cap…giddy with excitement….I, for one second, felt a stab in my heart…Gosh, I wish you could be see her….
I cannot replace you, when it comes to events like this..but I search for your guidance, saying to them, not only what I want to say, but what you, would say to them….
I miss you and I wished you could have shared this day with us..I can only hope, that God, parted the clouds, and let you take a glimpse, at your amazing grand daughter…I know God, let me feel your presence here today….

Much love
Your Daughter



I want to:
