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 am back

and all clear! Sorry to be absent for the past months but either I had my period on the 12th or I was out of the country so I did it later. BUT I did it anyway! I am much more aware thanks to Cheryls action here and I really would like to make even more young women aware so still thinking about some sort of action that I could use when I do trainings. I have the people there, now I only need a good way to bring it in and make them do it too. To be continued! Just for you to know that the fact taht I am quiet does not mean I am not involved because I am!

all clear!

Did it this morning after my period of last week and everything is good! So one woman in Antwerpen did it and is clear! Just thinking I should try to get a lot more women in my neigbourhood and family to do it! Will think of a strategy on paper because most of them are not using computers or in my neigbourhood not even speaking dutch or english…

This is a great initiative!

Wow, this is just great! I need to do this because I have genetic risk in my family! So this team and this reminder system will do the trick for sure! But I surely hope that nobody of our growing team will find anything! Let’s also go for a cancer free world!:-)
