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.

I walked around NYC almost every waking hour I was there. I wish I lived somewhere as interesting as there. I could walk forever in Manhattan and not get bored. There are only so many places to walk in Fremont, and almost nothing worth seeing.

I walked from the 1 train on 116th and Broadway, all the way around Central Park to the 6 train at Grand Central Station…plus across the Brooklyn Bridge, the Lower East Side, the West side of Central Park, the Financial District, Greenwich Village/Soho/Union Square, and all over the area around Madison Square Garden (where I was staying). Times Square and Canal Street were waaay too crowded to walk in.

going to start

My new co-worker, Amy, and I decided we are going to start walking around the Fremont Lakes this summer before school begins. Hopefully we can keep it up when school starts – maybe before school (maybe) or after school since she won’t be coaching. Plus if I get a cocker spaniel (see my 43things), dog walking!

Melissa Ramsour has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
