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.

Give blood
Something I want to do

Well this one is going to be a bit difficult as I am not even sure right now if I can give blood, I mean right this second I just couldn’t – I have low amount of iron (bringing it back to normal) and I am too young (but once I get to the legal age I am heading down, I’ll get my test done and hopefully I’ll be good to go). I have wanted to do this for awile now, and even though I have not done it yet I think it is worth doing as you don’t loose very much (about a pint of blood that your body can repair anyways) but you can give so much (a life) just knowing that makes me smile. I can’t wait =D

Go someplace very, very dark and look at the stars all night
A quiet summer night

Well my grandmother used to own a house up north and every year we would go up to have the traditional “get togethers”. One summer after my Mother and my Father divorced we had to live there for the summer and to make it more fun for me and my brother (as we were still pretty young) we set up a tent and I decided to head out in the middle of the night. I set down a blanket and just looked at the star filled sky, just thought about everything in my life and imagined how my life would be. It was a really nice, peaceful moment and it helped me get away from real life. I would recommend this to anyone and if I ever do this again (which I hope to) I would like to go further and see even more stars.

dance like nobody's watching
Have fun with it :)

I was in a club and decided I was tired of just dancing the same way with the little boys who think they can dance so I went to the middle of the room (where you can stand on the boxes) and danced my heart out I had so much fun and I had a guy come up and dance with me. There was a HUGE smile on my face the whole time and I just fooled around with it and had fun – that to me is the important part. If you want to do this I say do it somewhere that you are supposed to be dancing (for me it was a club) or if you’re really daring then you can do it to break the silence, be silly, or get rid of negative feelings. :P
