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 10 pounds
baby weight....

i thought as soon as the baby comes out i could easily fit into my skinny jeans. well, i certainly thought wrong. it’s been almost 6 months and i still have 10 more pounds to lose…

Get a digital SLR camera
unlimited rolls of film

when it comes to most things, i consider myself old school. i prefer the classics. still i admit that digital photography is one of the best things ever invented. very convenient specially when you just had a new baby. i got the Nikon D40 after trying my sister’s. it is super light and easy to use. it sure beats my photo shoot camera. best purchase i did this year so far.

Have a baby
love of my life

It’s true… having a baby changes your life in so many different ways. It’s amazing. It is a constant learning experience and it is all very exciting. Everyday you get to know your child better and she does the same to you. It’s not always easy but once you see the smile on her precious little face then you realize that it is all worth it…
