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.

The last one cut in half!

Getting closer to having no cc bills left!

And this one is at zero interest cause I have paid so many off.

(It’s funny, the less you need the pay the bills, the easier (like lower interest rates) they make it.)


And then there was one!

Well, I am donating a good deal of money to the No on 8 campaign in California (to keep marriage legal for EVERYONE)

And I’m down to ONE outstanding bill. (yippie!) Just one, and it’s down a big chunk!

And please support no on 8 in California!

Same Love = Same Law

And then there were two!

I’ve been working really long hours, picking up as many events as I can, and adding extra services.

I’ve just got two bills left! A big one, on zero interest, and a smaller one that I want to pay off really, really soon!

I’ve got a big smile, and it’s a sigh of relief. I was really near where I thought I’d never be able to dig out.

And now, it is as if, I can see the light coming in from the top of the hole.

Zappykins has gotten 17 cheers on this goal.
