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.

TheDoctorGirl is going to get VERY busy.

make my own cheese and serve it at a dinner party (read all 3 entries…)
Living... a new town and knowing no one makes the dinner party part of this goal that much harder.


You need a connector

There are lots of people who know zillions of people and can connect you to a large number. I was one before I moved across country and I still act that way (even if my own social life is very skimpy). If you know some people who are very outgoing, ask them if they know some people they could bring to a party because you are looking to get to know more people. Chances are you know someone who has lots of friends and would love to share them. Don’t make a real formal deal, just have some food and a place to sit and eat and talk, maybe have a couple of games to play or something.

TheDoctorGirl has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
