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.

change my name (read all 3 entries…)

All right. Maybe not Leona May. But Anastasia May gives me more of what I want. It’s a lengthening of my current name and a shortening of my middle name; it lets me make a few nicknames that I don’t think sound too bad; and it lets me define myself in a way that I couldn’t before. It makes my name more special to me, because it has meaning – it’s the name I have chosen for myself.



Firstly I think Anastasia is a beautiful name and it’s all about how you shorten it, so i don’t think you should change your name, you could go by any of the ones below
Nasa – aNAStAsia
Sian – aNastaSIA

I’m showing you how i came up with those using the capitals and rearranging. there are a few options available to you, think about it. All you have to do is introduce yourself as whichever one you pick and tell your friends that you want to be called that. Be firm, don’t respond unless they call the name you want. It might take a few months, but eventually you’ll be called what you want and your friends will stop making fun. Good luck


I want to:
