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.

Getting Married

I have been with my husband for almost 16 years, since we were about 16. We grew up together and then 8 years ago he popped the question. We flew off to Vegas and it was the best thing we ever did. Sure some say it was just a piece of paper, but to call one another husband and wife is truly amazing.

I think it’s worth it if you think of your ‘spouse or spouse to be’ as your friend and you can see communicating with them for years to come. You still have your space and yet have this wonderful person to share experiences with. It’s work, but it’s well worth it with the right person. I don’t think someone should be married just to be married…..
