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.

Finally finished the rough draft of my first screenplay! Its only 60 pages and needs some touching up, but I’m proud of it. It feels good to put my ideas down on paper and create something!

Still working

Its been 11 months since my last entry and I’ve only got 39 pages. Sometimes I just hit a wall and set it aside for a few weeks, then come back to it.

Taking forever

Well I’ve been working on my screenplay for a while, but so far I’ve only got 18 pages.

Started it...

Finally started my screenplay for a future major motion picture. Once its done, I’ll send it to a producer. You can read it after I fish it out of their dumpster…

I got ideas man

I’ve got a crap load of movie ideas (mostly B movies but who cares) rolling around in my head, and I’d like to put them down on paper. I’ll probably start with a book and turn it into a screenplay and hand it over to some producers, just so I can say I tried…
