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.

all I need now is money and vacation time

Because I got a job! This should make paying off the bills and saving up for a nice holiday MUCH easier. It’ll still take time, but at least it’s out there now – I feel like it’s not a “maybe someday we’ll go back” but “how much of my check shall I set aside for Fantasy Fest?”

I am going to start getting commissions at work soon, and all indications are that it is going to go well (I’m not even supposed to sell yet, but I’ve managed to talk people into many boxes of cookies and a couple of cookbooks). The nice thing is, in order to do well, I have to help people lose weight and get healthy. So they’ll get healthier, and I’ll get healthier too, and in the meantime I’ll eventually make enough money to show off my hot new bod in Key West!

I told my husband I’d wear nothing but body paint at Fantasy Fest if I got to my goal weight. You KNOW he’s going to hold me to that one!

greatest place on earth

Can’t wait to go again!


I want to:
