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 made 3 wreaths from old recycled fabric and old clothes. They turned out so cute,I almost dont want to sell them,especially the ones made with my kids old clothes. You can see them @ Junkmans Xwife FB page.

read to my kids everyday

I noticed last at my last Goodwill visit all of the AWESOME BOOKS that people are just throwing out,so for the heck of it I put a request on my FB saying “Hey,before dumping any old children’s books at Goodwill please save some for my kids!” I had only two responses,but WOW,did we get a ton of new books! I am THRILLED to have revamped the bookshelf! I suggest you asking your FB friends too!Yes,it might piss someone off that you are asking,but someone just might care enough to respond and bless your kids up too!! It was worth asking!!!Happy Reading!:)

going to see Chris Robinson in concert in Athens GA!:)

We did it!It felt like the movie “Detroit Rock City” for a minute as we were in an assembly line passing bottles of water back and forth to our overheated van,but we made it,met Chris in the parking lot of the hotel!
