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.

my hubby got snipped, so I'm off the hook!

He finally went through with it. He almost didn’t show up for his appointment. It is way easier on men. He was swollen and sore for a couple of weeks but mobile by the next day. His doc said that he had to “exhaust the pipes” so to speak at least three times a week afterwards for three weeks, so there was even a perk for him. We still need to use condoms for a couple months more, but after that it will be nice to have one less worry.


Tired of condoms and so is my husband. Other methods aren’t a good fit for my needs. I was given an appointment last August and forgot about it. So, now it is back on the front burner. My last child was a surprise. Very welcome, very loved, just stressful in terms of timing. I wanted another child and felt complete after her birth. So, no more. I’m too old for this.


I want to:
