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.

56. E-mails from friends

I like hearing from my friends but we all have busy lives so its nice to catch up from time to time with emails (and regular mail).

55. "dates" with my man

We always have a great time together but its nice to go out somewhere special.

54. Burt's Bees

Lotions and chapstick, I love. I’d like to try the shampoos and other products too.

just to talk to me. Not because she needs something. Just to talk.

52. When my nieces are excited to see me

It makes me sooooo happy!

51. Mexican food

Soooooo many Mexican places around. Hard to pick a favorite but right now I am craving a burrito bowl from Chipotle. There are some more authentic restaurants in town though, that I love.

50. Chinese Food

My favorite right now – from Chinatown Inn – Tomato Chilli Scallops. YUM.

49. Hot bubble bath

Especially on a chilly day!

48. Rita's Italian Ice

So many favorite flavors…so little time.

Rootbeer, bubbalicious, swedish fish, watermelon, banana, cotton candy….yum!

47. Going to see a comedian

We have tickets to see Bill Burr in December. Seen him before. He’s pretty funny. On the cruise in July, we saw 4 different comedians, 5 different shows. They were pretty funny!
