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.

Alexandryne If you yell and yell yet no one listens, perhaps you should whisper.

Totally awesome

So I have tape on my floor that has the directions written on it, like a compass. I’ve had it there for years. And last night, for some reason (I don’t know why, it was completely and utterly random) I decided to do a spell.

Now I know that I’ve said before you can’t just make up some random words an shove them together and expect your spell to work, but on reflection I think as long as you’re similar to something already created, it’ll still work. And really how hard can it be to get close to any of the billions of wing spells?? Not very, I say.

Well I picked up a feather and started talking, while moving my feet over the tape. I don’t even remember what I said lol, but… I am pumped full of adrenaline and my back won’t stop itching.

I’ve got my fingers crossed!!

So, basically, what I’m trying to say is that don’t rely on someone else to make your spells. Try whatever comes to mind! Open up to the world outside and improvise!! Make your wish really come from YOU!

Good luck!

You’ve got to leap from the nest to learn how to fly
