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.

Done, done, done!

Finally I found a place to donate my bag of clothes. Delivered it to the drop off at the local Frenchy’s today.


I can’t find a number for New to You, maybe it’s closed. I need to investigate this more or find another second hand store to take this bag of clothes to. Maybe the Salvation Army store. Regardless, this needs to get taken care of. This bag MUST get out of my bedroom!


I got so busy getting ready for my trip that I forgot to call New to You. I’ll do it tomorrow.

Call New to You this week

I will call the used clothing store this week to find out if they are accepting donations at the present time. If so I could drop the bag off on Thursday on our way to the airport.

I've made it through the "sort" part

of this goal, now I need to get the bag delivered to the used clothing store. This needs to be done ASAP so the bag doesn’t sit in my bedroom for months!
