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.

I'm such a nerd...

So, after seeing the 4 Harry Potter movies out so far and loving them, I decided I finally needed to read the books. I borrowed them all from my boyfriend’s family this semester and not only read them all and fell in love with them but am now rereading the last two. I know its pretty dorky for a college student, but I can’t help it, I found books that I enjoy because I really get into the story and I think it may have even inspired me to try my hand at writing a bit.

fall in love with someone who loves me too
he is amazing...

in the beginning i wasnt sure, i didnt know what would happen but i had this sense that God was telling me to take a chance so i did and i couldnt be happier. im thankful for every bit of time i get to spend with him and im praying i wont ever have to end.

Take more pictures (read all 3 entries…)

ive gotten in a habit of carrying my camera with me almost all the time and as a result now have about 300 pictures loaded on my computer, mostly from the past few months. the only task left is putting them all onto discs for backup. ive managed to catch some amazing pictures and memories though, so im glad i made an effort at this and im going to conitnue it for sure!

See all entries ...
