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.

I got a new pair of glasses and I have been wearing those pretty much every day for a month. I have worn my contacts I think one day since I got my glasses. I feel like I really need to let my eyes heal and I need to get to a place where I know I will take them out every night before I start wearing them again.

Doing better...

Okay, I got a wake up call about going blind and blah blah blah. I wore my glasses to let my eyes rest for about 2 weeks and now I only wear my contacts every now and then and I don’t sleep in them anymore. :) I’ll give it a little longer before I claim I’ve done this though… ;)

Oh man!

I haven’t taken my contacts out in about 4 days. I really mean to, but it just doesn’t work out. I swear I am so lazy. :/


I have been taking them out mostly every night. I am so bad with my eyes. I used to leave my contacts in for months at a time. I know, I know!! I’m stupid. I have quit that bad habit though and I trying very hard to take better care of my eyes.
