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.

Not done. Not possible. Unless I really go out on a hard search for someone to do it with. And I would rather save that hard search energy for weekend trips.

Maybe barrin a weekend trip i could do this as a mercy goal. However if I still had my car up and running I could do it on my own.

suggested this as a date

to one guy I noticed liked biking. I think it’s an excellent idea.

BTW, I fixed the crunched cruiser for surprisingly cheap.

I also tried to sell the mountain bike, only to find the frame has a crack in it. My mechanic friend is looking into getting it warrantied for me, as Specialized frames have lifetime warranties. If not, then I will take this bike with me to Europe, ride it there, and before I come back I will strip it for parts and recycle it there. The parts I will use to build a new bike.

I'm the chick with three bikes

but I have to repair the cruiser as I stupidly crunched the fork with my car, dammit!

My road bike hangs, sometimes used.

My mountain bike mountains no more – it clunkily commutes.

But I dooooo like the velodrome. Just wear my gear, take my pedals, and go.

She's Awake! has gotten 2 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
