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.

JC is out

Uh, I liked him well enough on the first date, but I found it really annoying that he wanted us to act like boyfriend and girlfriend (being cuddly) ´cause I don’t know him and he’s not my boyfriend…

And there were a few other details that I didn’t like.

But what I really didn’t like was the text message on Saturday morning (asking where I had disappeared to, asking me to please check in and miss him a little bit) and then the phone conversation afterwards, where the first thing he said was “get out of bed already lazy!” Grrr.

I don’t even know the guy and he thinks he’s hysterically funny… we talked but he complained about how sensitive I seemed to, how I get angry so easy, and that I should have a better sense of humor.

Then I went out with a really cool guy Saturday night, who is NOT insecure or pressuring me, or otherwise annoying in anyway.

I really don’t feel like seeing JC again.

But hey! That’s two guys who I have “let” take me out this month!


I let Juan Carlos take me out yesterday. I think I’ll let him take me out again!

I don't feel like another blind date..

I’ve had a few suggestions or invites, but they are from guys I’m meeting online, who I have barely begun to chat with.

I could let one of them take me out, but I am really tired of internet dating! And I didn’t go out this weekend…

locochona has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
