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.

learn how to be in a relationship. (read all 8 entries…)

Right now I have a lot of male friends and i think it would be fairly easy to get a boyfriend if i wanted one. The thing is, I hate the fact that when you’re in a relationship, not everyone is ok with you having male friends. The guy I choose to be with must definitely not be the jealous type. I generally find I get on better with guys and it would be such a shame to lose some of those friendships due to being in a relationship.
Another thing I’m still not sure about is whether a guy not liking dogs is a deal breaker for me. I definitely would prefer a man who likes them, however I’m wondering is this essential for me? Am I too picky? Hmm…


this is just a test cheering back. Eventually.

Jealous people are hard work.

I think you’re on the right track.

Hey thankyou :)

eclectic passion has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
