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.

#23

Lord of the Rings. Kind of a guilty pleasure, but these movies are brilliant :)



#22

Louder Now. This is by far the best Taking Back Sunday album, both because of how amazing it sounds and because Fred Mascherino was still in the band.



#21

Snow days. I love waking up and seeing on the news that school is cancelled. A little gift from the gods at 5 in the morning.



#20

House. I freaking love this show. At times I feel I have an unhealthy obsession with it, but it’s just that awesome.



#19

Yoga. Though I sometimes have to force myself to get through the whole lesson, I always feel calmer and more relaxed after I do yoga.



#18

Christmas. Yes, the gifts are amazing, but I love eating sugar cookies, putting up the tree and looking at all the ornaments, seeing all the snow and just celebrating the holidays with everyone.



#17

Being nervous. I love that nervous high I always get!



#16

Making a difference. Being in clubs like recycling club and Invisible Children club really makes me feel like I’m doing something good for the world.



#15

The ocean. there’s nothing better than getting mauled by waves and tasting the saltiness of the water. The dolphins don’t hurt either.



#14

Taking risks. Doing even the smallest “bad” things gives me an adrenaline rush. Even hopping the fence is bad ass for me.
