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.

clean off my porch

its ugly terrible disgusting to look at! I will buy some outdoor shelves and some tupperware with lids to tidy it up. Sweep off the rug. Organize the toys. Finish raking the lawn, and the yard will look great.

start a small business
My small biz

go to the portland zoo
The Portland Zoo

We live in central Oregon and our son is 5. We have wanted to take him to the portland Zoo since he was about one year old and now he is old enough and smart enough to appreciate all the zoo can offer him. We took him to the fresno zoo in california when he was 2, and he just loved that! Plus, we totally want to go see all the animals!!
