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.

Julie Rex Feels terrible for ignoring 43Things! D:

protect the woobies (read all 2 entries…)
Woobie=someone you just want to huuug!

There are many definitions of a woobie, basically its just that cute and adorable character that most likely has a sad past, and you just want to hug and comfort them!
I honestly believe, that most of today’s violence can be solved, if we just stop being so self-centered and start taking care of each other more. Protect our woobies! Make everyone feel loved! Because everyone really does deserve to be loved!
I was watching this video in class a while ago, and it was about this teenage boy who snapped and took a gun to school, and then proceeded to shoot a bunch of people. And I just sat there thinking to myself, “If SOMEONE had just been there when he really needed them, he would have never snapped, and then all those people might still be alive today.” He really was just an average kid, he had a few learning disabilities, and his family was pretty harsh on him. And all his friends did was get him into more trouble.
It would have been an easy fix for me.
But idk.
I guess this goal for me, is really to just treat everyone I know as best as I can. And to be there when anybody needs me, because we all need a shoulder every now and again.

Dondy154 was last seen wandering vaguely, quite of her own accord...

Is there anything more worth doing?

There’s an old saying about the way to judge a society is to see what care they take of the vulnerable. It may look good and strong and successful on the outside, but if there are people being ignored and left to flounder then it is a society that has a cancer.

I really like this goal.

Thank you!

I really like this goal too, I’ve never heard that old saying before, but I agree with it strongly… very well put. Thanks again!
