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.

5 months

It has been 5 months without soda. I have been tempted lately because the convenies here are selling Mountain Dew which I loved back in the States. But I am staying strong.

43 days

It has been 43 days straight without any soday!

Over a month

It has been over a month without any soda. The last week or so has been difficult. I live in Japan now so there aren’t too many choices or temptations. I flew back home to visit my family in the states this week and it was so difficult getting something else to drink on the plane. then I went to a movie and really wanted a Coke with my popcorn, but stayed strong. Now I am staying with my parents and they are stocked to the limit with pop. Plus I really crave Mountain Dew which I can’t get back in Japan. But I’m not giving in.

3 weeks

It has been three weeks and still no soda!

2 weeks

2 weeks without a drop of soda!

1 whole week!

It has been one week without any soda. Hopefully, I can keep up with it.

Vacation trouble

I had 4 sodas on vacation.
