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.

has been unfortunately put on pause because i currently don’t have a job!

so, it’s a bit impossible…

well unless i just save the money people give me for being a college student… maybe i can make some sort of income this way :P

i still have about $500 in a bank account total… but i see that more than likely going down…


total: $198.47
left2go: $801.53

I’m definitely not getting paid as much as I once was. I need to try to not spend as much and realize I do have the food at home if I really need to get something to eat. The only thing that can really drain me now is gas. I just want to act as if I don’t even have a savings account. It’s not there, I don’t know about this 198 bucks that just sits there :P

the holidays..

took me back down haha

total: $96.68
left2go: $903.32

I plan to get back to keeping track of what I’m spending money on… Hopefully that will help!


Didn’t get paid that much, but at least it’s a little bit more going into savings and more than what I’ve had. Can’t complain on that.

left to go: $823.54
