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.

postponed to 2011

:( Such sad news – Bono had to have emergency surgery so we are not going to see them this month :(

We have to decide what to do with our hotel room and time off?


I’m going to take this off my list until next year. The tickets will be usable for next year.

so we didn't know who the opening act of the show was going to be when we bought the tickets

and guess who owns almost ALL the albums of the now announced opening act?

That’s right – ME!

Lenny Kravitz is opening for U2 when we go see them in concert this JUNE!

Amazing Universe – thanks!

outfits obtained

I selected two little dresses to wear – they both cost less than $20 so I’ll get to pick once the day arrives and just wear the one that feels right! :)

now i just need to figure out what shoes to wear with them – I’ll have to buy a pair because nothing I have will work that I own now. Unless I wear my flip flops! :)

we got the tickets

so now we just need to go – 6 months to wait – what am I going to wear? We are going to do a U2 marathon video weekend and I’m going to fill my mp3 players with a ton more of their music. My DH is so stoked it isn’t even Funny!

loveinthecure has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
