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.

Well, we’ve done a lot of great things with her, like take her to the zoo, visited a museum, gone to lapsits at the library, and held playdates. And we’re in the process of giving her a little sister.

I still want to remember to have plenty of tea parties and picnics, and above all, let both of these little girls know how loved they are and that I’ve waited my entire life to give them everything I have.

Things to do to acheive this goal

I want to remember to get her a goldfish, take her to the beach, and give her at least one sibling. She’s only 8 weeks old tomorrow, so I’ll be listing fun things like these under this goal to help me remember all the things I want to do with and for her.

It's gunna be a while...

I know the hubby and I won’t hear the pitter patter of little feet any time soon (at least not for nine months…= P), but I so want to be a good mommy. Already I’m amazingly in love with these little people that I haven’t met and that don’t even exist yet. How crazy is that?

Anyway, there are little things from my childhood that I don’t want my kids to miss out on. Things that my mom made so much fun for my brother and me – like hopscotch, couch cushion forts, and mixing corn starch, water, and food coloring to make this goopy pile of fun. If I forget to do these things with my kids I will be a total failure = )


This is a long term-goal as well. I don’t have children, but can’t wait to start a family!! Once my fiance and I are totally prepared to become parents I will devote every fiber of my being to creating a healthy, happy environment for my children. I couldn’t let myself do anything less than completely support them in everything they want to do and stay as patient as possible.

ChiOmegaGirl has gotten 102 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
