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.

PhoenixTail is ready for an adventure.

Go to a rave (read all 3 entries…)
Still love raving!

I still fucking love raving, and I have raved sober more often than I have raved on substances.
I feel like I need to defend it. Ravers are not all druggies. In fact, many ravers don’t even do drugs. I would greatly appreciate all the close-minded individuals to look past the “negative” aspects that irresponsible individuals give to raving.
You know, lots of other “scenes” have drugs. People just hate on raves because talking about pot heads at rock shows have gotten old. See? Stereotypes.
I loooove raving, and it’s made me a great person. I’ve met so many people, and have made so many friends. If you wanna rave, do IT! Don’t let somebody else tell you not to. Seriously, you don’t have to be on drugs. If you decide to be on substances get INFORMED and HYDRATE!!! I can’t stress that enough. And don’t overdo it either.
Anyway, rave on guys!!!


PhoenixTail has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
