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.

write more love letters

I sometimes write love notes to my fiance while he’s sitting right next to me. Sometimes I write notes and put them with his keys or in the glove box of the car.

I think I would like to write at least one love letter every week.


that would be sooooo sweet!

i’d do that if i had someone to write it to…hmmmm :-)

Love letters

Love letters are so under rated. Everyone should write more in general, but love letters used to be so full of emotion and it was a way to share one’s true feelings, and no one does that anymore. I think it’s great what you are doing, even if it’s just an ‘I love you’.

I always put a little not or card in my husband bag if he leaves town. So he has a surprise and part of me with him all the time!

Love letters are so sweet and exciting.


I want to:
