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.

I want to make more time for family time...all of us together as well as individually with each of my children. (read all 2 entries…)
My daughter...

Snuggled with my 14 (just about 15) yr old daughter tonight for the first time in probably years. She initiated it, I was sitting on the chaise lounge of our sofa and she came over with her little blanket and sat between my legs and leaned back into my arms. Her head was lying right below my head and I put my arms around her and we held hands. We just laid there snuggling and talking while watching one of our favorite shows, Storage Wars, I even had my son take a few pictures since it was such a rare occasion. We used to snuggle all the time, but as she’s grown into a teen, she has become ‘too old’ for that sort of thing. Luckily my son is still in the snuggling stage of his life!!!



I want to:
