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.

suprise dinner

my grandmother is going to be another year older making her either 86 or 87, can’t remember. I’ve asked her to my house for dinner and asked my relatives/friends to come surprise her for this dinner should be fun!

looking forward to it. End of the month.

brief visit

I dropped off my #1 child and my nephew tonight so they can spend time with her before the day of thanks and I saw her. So technically I visited. :-)

I should get better at this, really I should.

Grandma is another year older

Had a great time with my grandmother for her birthday this April. She is 86 now. We took her to Dennys. My #2 loves her.

Don’t they look like they are having so much fun!

We had fun

when we went to see her two weekends ago. She is so cute and lively! I love my grandmother. I am going to see her again this weekend when we all drive over to the blow out 1st birthday party for my niece. YEAH!

April 3

going to spend my sunday with my grandma!


“Grandma? What’s the most important thing you would tell to young people?”

“Take care of your teeth.”

Seriously – she is a big proponent of tooth care so that your older life is much better, she didn’t take care of her teeth and now she has a lot of issues. She would suggest this to anyone at any age. I know – she does me!

spring break

my child visited her again for three nights – they all enjoyed each other very much – I am glad he is getting to spend time with his great grand mother!

I didn't but my son did

and he loved it because he got to play video games (with his great grandmother!), eat good food and burn things (my grandmother apparently doesn’t like to shred things but burns them the old fashioned way!) Maybe I should bring my old journals to her for a burn!?

My son stayed with her for 3 nights and four days and he LOVED it.

and Grandpa too
