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.

I think with this last two, I can count this as accomplished. I no longer have random lotion all over the place.



One more gone.

I am down to my last two.



Untitled

One got tossed because it’s gone off, and another one got all used up today. I am down to my last two or three, now. This is great.



Untitled

Another one gone, today.



Untitled

Making good progress on this one, finished two off this week and am almost through a third.



Untitled

Being in a place that has the shower right next to the sink is making this goal easy. I am almost 2/3 of the way through one of my older ones. I think I’ll be able to finish this one within a few months, now.



Untitled

Started this one again, now that it’s not uber freezing here.



Untitled

I threw one out the other day that had turned. It was too strongly scented for my liking anyway. Fragrance allergies necessitate most stuff having to be at least unscented for me to tolerate, with few exceptions.



Untitled

I am working on this one again. A colder fall than normal has made my skin very dry, so a good time to use what I have.



Untitled

I’m going to focus on this one more in the fall. The summer makes it kind of pointless to put it on when it all gets sweated right off again. Feels gross, too.
