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.

I drove when I was only 2

Okay, not really. I was having visitation day with my dad. Every visit, he would take me to McDonald’s, which was a big deal. We were incredibly poor, and a happy meal was the equivalent of a diamond as big as your fist. When we’d get in the car to leave, he’d let me sit on his lap and have my hands on the wheel while he was the one who let it coast down the driveway. Then it was the car seat for me.

Not sure if this is really all that interesting, but I truly believed I was driving those few times. And some people think the fact that I remember things from age 2 is interesting in itself so I thought i’d share.


Eliza Marie is feeling great!

I find it interesting! I think it’s great to have such vivid memories when you were that young. I don’t remember much when I was that young. I can’t recall anything under the age of 5 or 6ish, but I have pictures that I can help jog the memory.

Anyway, it was such a more simple time then when it was okay to do those kind of things. Now a days it would be way too dangerous to do this.

Angelica Anarchy has gotten 3 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
