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.

#30) thunderstorms

sometimes they scare me.
but mostly, i just love the feeling
you know, right before a storm?
where everything’s all shook up?
and the wind’s blowing,
it feels very calm-like.
and then it starts raining like BAM.
i just like it.

#29) friendship bracelets

I like making them.
And wearing them.
It makes me feel useful,
because even if I screw up while amking them
it’s okay.
and they colors can be very pretty-ful.

#28) british accents

i just like them.
especially when american people
try to imitate them.
they’re cute.
And always make me smile.

#27) butterflies

as someone who has a really short attention span.
seeing a butterfly
really really really
amuses me.
and chasing them
is pretty fun too.
The strange looks
only make me laugh harder.

#26) running

i’m not for running outside.
i’ll admit, i’m not so good at that.
at the moment, i’m still only good
at running on the treadmill.
but still.
it’s hard for me to get on their in the first place.
but once i do.
it’s all good. =)

#25) teen titans

i remember.
i watched an old episode the other day, right?
and i was thinking,
“I remember why i loved this show.”
it’s a great cartoon.
it makes me laugh to watch it.
it’s a great show.

#24) showers

I love showering.
Because of the warm water.
And how clean I feel afterwards.
It’s nice.
And very refereshing.
I’m always happy after I take a shower.
Whether I’m mad or sad or angry before.
It calms me down.

#23) dancing

it involves moving
and you know how they say exercise releases
hormones or something
that make you happy
and i feel prettyful
and sexy
and coordinated when i dance.
which is a rarity. ;-)

#22) lambs

I’ve had them up at the barn
For two or three years now.
I like them out of all my farm animals best.
They’re alway so nice to me.
And fuzzy.

#21) newspapers

After taking journalism,
I’ve re-discovered an appreciation for newspapers.
Looking for it from
Either a critical eye
As a journalist
Or just an ordinary reader.
It’s kind of like my book-love.
I’m a nerd.


I want to:
