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.

get a new car (read all 3 entries…)
We did it!

Blitz and I got a mega-upgrade! 2010 Rav-4 with lots of bells and whistles (that I didn’t necessarily care about, but they’re nice). Blitzie gets his own cargo space to ride in. Were not expecting necessarily to seal the deal tonight, but they bought my old car and I drove home in the new one. :D

Congratulations!

You must be super excited.

Sounds like Blitz is going to be cruising in style. And, oh yeah, you will, too. :)

Definitely!

I’ve been telling Blitz he’s going to be very popular with the ladies. ;)

It will take some adjusting for me. I’ve driven mostly really old junky cars and I wanted a small car before getting the dog, but I think I can get used to a little luxury. :P I feel very lucky.

I bet

Blitz is already popular with the ladies. This is going to really put him over the top. You’re going to have to get him a little black book. Haha

I think that you deserve a little luxury. :)

The ladies like him

And this is in spite of his having to undergo the indignities of a certain operation last year. :O ;)

Thank you. I am enjoying it. :)
