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.

lose 5 lbs

Instead of losing 5 pounds I actually GAINED 5 pounds. Damn it. Cookies are a major weakness for me.

My boobs got bigger so I don’t really even care all that much.

I’ll work out and try to cut back on the sweets so I can go back to my usual weight I guess.

spend less time on the internet
This goal's going pretty good.

Work has kept me busy lately. I end up coming home really tired and then taking a nap. Also, since I have to wake up really early for work I’ve quit staying up late at night on my laptop.

In a few weeks I’ll have my summer college courses to keep me busy as well. Yay!

Oh and it feels great not being addicted to the interwebs. :P

stop eating sugar

I’m not doing so well with this goal… I baked chocolate chip cookies yesterday. At least I shared (the calories) with others. haha
