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.

finish my sons scrapbook

I have a problem when it comes to finishing my son’s scrapbook. I really don’t know where to take it. Most scrapbook places don’t sell things for the death of a child or anything like that. I really just don’t know how to end it.

make more time for my friends

There really doesn’t seem to be enough time in a week to make time to see most of my friends. And when I’m able to, they are not.

Fix things between me and my mom

My mom and I had a falling out a month or so ago. We were to the point to where we weren’t even talking and our only conversation was through emails. I really don’t even know what it was about. Well, she was at my wedding and we settled things for the most part. But her way of settling is by forgetting about it and acting like it never happened.
