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.

Lose weight and get in shape. (read all 2 entries…)
Went down 3 sizes...

I have gone down 3 just two or three more. I will feel better than I do now.

teach my kids that everyones the same color if you close your eyes
What helps...

What helps me is that I have friends of every race. My best friend is married to a wonderful man, he is Guyanese. Many of our visits include many of his friends and family, so my children are exposed and play with adults and children of different races. My children are also of Hispanic and Scottish decent, yeah talk about a mix! I keep my truths and beliefs and instill them into my boys, I explain we all feel and bleed the same, nobody is to be left behind, ever.

Buy a House
I just moved in...

It was an easy process. I bought a home that was built in the 1930’s, so it still has all the old doors and built in’s. All the doors have original hardware, glass door knobs.Curved Doorways and hardwood floors.I also have a full concrete driveway and a brand new two car garage.It is a three bedroom, two bath home. Every appliance was included, washer/dryer, fridge, oven, dishwasher, even the microwave. The owners really needed to sell. The housing inspector said I should of paid twenty grand more for this home. Lucky Me! Northwest Ohio is a decently priced area to buy. I didn’t pay over $150 for it. Pic included in my kitchen…
