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 wrote two letters to friends that I have not been in contact with for three months! Already heard back from my one friend who was super excited about it!

Just the other day...

I wrote two letters! One to my grandparents who sent me a card for my birthday, and one to my aunt who also sent me a birthday card! I filled them in on my life and hopefully I get some nice letters back too :)


I wrote a letter to my sister the other day, all about school! She got it and was super excited :)

I just sent one off!

I sent one to my good friend on Monday after recieving one back from her :) She leaves for Europe soon and I will send her some letters there too! Hopefully I’ll get a postcard!

one more :)

I wrote one more letter today to my good friend. I love sending letters to her and love getting them back! She writes in this beautiful flowery writing style that makes me smile from ear to ear. I can hear her saying the words in my head and I try to write like her when I write my letters.

Thank you, Friend :)

4 letters!

I wrote 4 letters last week to my friends from college! And I even got one back :) I have 3 more to write this week I think! I’m doing them tomorrow, since I don’t work!

Its Official

I officially sent out 5 letters today :) WOOHOO!

Getting Started

So I was talking to my aunt about writing letters to my friends who are away at college and she says, “I have tons of cute stationary that you can have!” So now I’m all set! I got a list of all of my friends addresses and I’m going to start writing them later today! :) :)

Edit: I have written 5 so far and have 3 to go… It feels so good :)
