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.

peaceful life

Today I am thankful that I have be given such a peaceful life. It is full of love, joy, and good stuff. I am thankful for laughter and the chance to enjoy it. I am thankful that I am safe in the kind of way I have always wanted. I am thankful that I KNOW I am loved.

write to my compassion girl more often
Joy in simple things

I love writing to my compassion child and her mother. They bring such joy to my life. Each word they write is a reminder to me to be thankful, to take pleasure in small things, and to be joyful.

Our relationship is so precious to me. They have said that they greatly enjoy my letters too… so in turn I want to write them more to bring them joy, to be reminded to pray for my faraway friends, and so they know that the american girl that writes to them loves them dearly.

I wrote them a letter today…. more soon.
