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.

Two Friends This Month.

They’re marrying each other and I’m invited. I’m bringing a friend.

Next Month!

The last of the cousins in the same family getting married will probably be it for them. I can’t imaging who else, unless one of my brothers ties the knot ritualistically.

Family Wedding.

For my cousin who got married, it’s his fourth one he’s attended, but this time, he was the star!

Four Down, One to Go.

This week, one of my cousins is getting married. His other 3 siblings tied the knot in the past, but his younger sister is getting hitched next month. I’ve got almost all of them on videotape too. I could made one big movie about all of them.


I want to:
