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.

Last Thanksgiving

there was a lot of laughing
while my friend here was
dressed up
in some sort of different fur or

pounce on someone (read all 10 entries…)
My options used to be limited

toys, laser pointers or the man.
13 days ago, he brought another thing into the house.
I hated it
threw a fit, growled and hissed.
The man kept the thing in the bathroom with the door closed for days

Then he started to let it out for brief periods.
What was it?
It looked like me but tiny.

10 days ago, when he was home from work that night, he let the thing out.
Now I have something to cuddle with, chase and wrestle.
I like that thing

Go out on the balcony (read all 2 entries…)
He lets

when he plays with the green things out there
Those ones I can’t touch in the house

Where to begin

My man leaves me toys
He plays with me sometimes
I entertain myself

In the place where he has food and a lake that has water in it sometimes
There is a toy I really like
He uses it to clean where he puts food

He said it was a Brillo pad

I go get when he isn’t home
So he used to hide it under cloth things
Easy game
I put it in other places
like where I sleep

He says its bad for me
and puts it in the cupboard

Explore my new surroundings (read all 9 entries…)
There are lots

of noises during the light hours

I am scared
and don’t know what he is talking about

Keep thinking good thoughts for Sadie (read all 2 entries…)

I’m a different kind of cat

I like dogs
and I will miss her
because through some words typed by someone who lived with her
cared for her
and was a family for her

I felt as if I had rubbed up against her and
slept beside her
counting her as a friend

Many animals are my friend
Just as those Humans are
that care enough to
love us

He has let me

he told me it is 3 floors high and I will have to have a harness and leash if it is to continue

Maybe he is worried about the tall tree that has branches 3 feet away from the rail

with birds and squirrels

But I did take some out of one of them
