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.

it felt so amazing and purifying.. it jsut took a lot of thought to write the message and its worth it… but my parents thought i was throwing trash in the ocean but im lik its a message in a bottle. that irritated me a lot.


itll definately be a love message lol… maybe to my ex gf… i dunno…


how come it seems so simple but i cant seem to get off my ass and do it. maybe im scared i’ll send a message to someone and pour my heart out and fear never knowing what will happen, if itll even get to anyone, etc. whoever does get my message will be the luckiest person on the earth. i’m a poet and a writer, an artist. btw should i give out any phone number or anything just in case someone wonderful finds it and happens to be my future soulmate ive never known…


now i wonder what message ill write….
