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.

Still good. =]

I have been writing, just not blogging my writings. I think I am going to post all four entries on my myspace soon. So, for those of you who are keeping me accountable for this, and those of you who read my blogs regularly, don’t worry, come next week, you will have four to read.


I love this goal. Really. It makes me feel so… I don’t even know the word for it, but I love it. I love telling people my beliefs and thoughts and love to see their reaction to my beliefs. And above all else, I love to honor Him with the gift that He gave to me. It’s amazing.

Why not honor Him with the gift he gave to me?

I made a promise to surrender my writing. And no, I don’t mean that I am going to give up writing in any sense, I just mean that I am going to start writing more for God and less for myself. I realized that I write merely for my own personal gain and I hardly ever write about my faith, or even the amazing things God is doing in my life. So, I decided that things are going to change. Yes, I am going to continue to write my stories and yes, I still want to get a book published by the time I am 25, but I am also going to write for God. After all, He is the reason that I have the ability to write the way I do, why shouldn’t I glorify Him with a gift He gave to me?

Sal_Gal has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
