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.

Uh oh

I now really want to learn to drive – My boyfriend let me drive his car twice on his driveway and on a private road and it’s really fun! I can do hill starts and gear changes and things and really wanna learn to drive but can’t afford it… There’s also a car that I want to buy, but again, can’t afford that either!

Not just yet...

It’s really not necessary to be able to drive while I’m in Portsmouth at uni. I would learn over the summer but this summer I intend to go away. Might try to do it next year, who knows! I’m not sure that I want to learn to drive because I know that if I do I’ll become really lazy!! I think I’ll probably just learn to drive and not get a car or something… I’ll decide sometime! :D


My provisional license turned up today! =D

Zoe has gotten 37 cheers on this goal.
