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.

Although it almost took me a year and a half to complete it was still definitely worth it!! This has been a crazy time in my life. During this goal we bought a home, celebrated my sister’s graduation from Princeton, went to Kenya, survived mass rioting in Kenya, made some serious commitments to each other, each lost a grandma, two aunts, and welcomed a new kitty into our family. It really helped to have something to make me focus on the good things going on in troubling times.

Amazing fresh squeezed juice that J makes me almost every morning. It’s such a great pick me up sometimes I even forget my coffee. My current favorite combo is:
1 orange
3 clementines
4 strawberries

Dinner with Nicole! She’s starting a new job so she won’t be able to come visit until this summer so it was a little bittersweet.

Today we secretly blew off both of our families… It was amazing!!! We cleaned, went out for Chinese food, and hung out in bed a lot! It was pretty much my dream day. Happy Easter to us!
