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.

stay up all night wandering around outside

When i was younger me and my friends used to pull all nighters and just walk around in the neighborhood or in the woods with no where to go just walking around.. now that i think of this and how stupid it was for a couple of young girls to walk to woods at night i would still definatly do it again :)

Steal someone's lawn gnome.

Me and my friends had to wait like an hour one night before the movie we wanted to say was going to be playing, so we decided to make a list of things and try to find them in peoples yards.. it was a blast, even though we didn’t end up getting half the stuff on the list whenever we saw something we liked we stopped and one of us got out and snatched it.. we ended up making a shrine with all of the stuff in my yard and taking pictures.. it was amazing fun to pass the time :)
