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.

become a 'secret millionaire'
It is a good reason to become rich

Recover from father's death
He left us for a peaceful place

Father passed away last Saturday afternoon- after the rush of the funeeral- today i have the tiem to think about him- his characteristics and his loves- he loved children without doubt – and he loved all of us- bpught us all very expensive toys and he saved jall of them till his death – the last few years especially the last two weeks werer crazy- trying to take care of the dementia and then the horrible flu bug that made his bowels run that he could not walk – then the double whammy of the heart attack- how I wish I had a partner who could have shared the caring with tme- it would have allowed me to concentrate on his life and not on his illness- still I did my outmost- God please look out for him- and everyone on the universe.
