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.

get another tattoo

I have three already :) My most recent one isn’t even completely healed and I’m already knocking around some ideas for my next one. Very addicting.

write to my penpal

In middle school, we were paired up with kids in Holland to become penpals. I continued to write my penpal through high school but then I just become so busy that I never sit down to write a letter. I feel really badly about this and I want to get back in touch with her.

Become a vegetarian

I’m a huuuuge animal lover. I even have a tattoo of pawprints. I’m wholeheartedly against the inhumane practices going on right now to produce meat (at least commercially, local and organic meat tends to have better practices). I do not want to support this industry. I still live with my parents and brothers so I basically have to eat what they eat. Also, I know I would become lazy and not eat the proper alternatives or take the right supplements and I’d probably end up being anemic or something. This is definitely a goal I would like to reach – and keep – though.
