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.

figure out how to get my account back
JdV here

Somehow the system created this new account for me; meanwhile, I can’t get to my old one. It’s probably not worthwhile trying to fix it – but I did want to do a final download of all my stuff…



drive across the country (read all 8 entries…)
Sun Prairie, WI

Another long day of driving, with a break in the middle in Minneapolis. Lots of traffic. The Montana days of set the cruise control to 80, and just pass the occasional semi truck are long over.

Since 43things apparently has not yet shut down, I can report that we have driven nearly a thousand miles, and are currently resting in Miles City, Montana.
