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.

Mission Accomplished!!!

We just got back yesterday from our 10 day vacation with our friends! It was awesome and restful and I am ready to go!

Mini Vacation- Check!

My husband and I just got back from a long weekend in Phili and it was a lot of fun. It was sort of a teaser vacation before our actual awesome vacation at the beach later this summer!

Anniversary Get Away

My husband and I are now also going to take a mini vacation for our anniversary. It’s historical which makes me happy and I’ve never been there which is a bit exciting. Less than two weeks away…

It's official!

Well, we have officially booked our vacation and our friends have decided to come along! I am super psyched!

Planning stages

My husband and I are sorely in need of a get away! Sadly, we are a bit strapped for cash at the moment. We are, however, planning to go to the Outerbanks in North Carolina this summer and rent a house for the week. We are hoping to split the rental with two sets of our married friends. I am super psyched!
