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.

I want to not be scared to hold a womans hand in public or to kiss a woman in public (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I finally got over my fear with this girl I was dating. We were in a busy town and I just reached for her hand and walked around. people stopped, they stared, they said shit but we just kept walking.

I hope I will be able to do that with other women but im sure sometimes I will be uncomfortable given the situation but I feel like i have finally grown and am not as scared anymore.



get a tattoo that has a significant meaning (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I did it finally. Got my first tattoo and it had significant meaning to me. I got the symbol for being a feminist tattooed on my right forearm. Women still make 77cents to the mens dollar. We still are not equal. Its a sad thing. But I love my tattoo! It didnt hurt at all mostly just felt like someone scratching you with nails which was no big deal and I highly suggest to everyone to get a tattoo if you want one!

I did it.
My first tattoo, And it was the feminist symbol.

Totally 100% worth doing and I love how people on the street ask me what it is if they dont know and I can go into a rant about womens rights or when people do know how stoked they are to see it.
