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.

My options used to be limited

toys, laser pointers or the man.
13 days ago, he brought another thing into the house.
I hated it
threw a fit, growled and hissed.
The man kept the thing in the bathroom with the door closed for days

Then he started to let it out for brief periods.
What was it?
It looked like me but tiny.

10 days ago, when he was home from work that night, he let the thing out.
Now I have something to cuddle with, chase and wrestle.
I like that thing


Or something


Don't make me come down there

I'd sure like

to hunt this guy down and slash his eyes out pounce on the person that used my cousin making this animated gif

How rude

bwaaa haaaaa haaaaaa

An unknown force

has arrived to terrorize my man and I

I will handle this in my own way

observe how I punish this uninvited invader


Practicing as we speak
or as I type
