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.

43 is shutting down??

I came on here to check up on this place and how it was going (I haven’t been on here in forever!) just to find out that it’s being shut down. I actually do feel kind of sad, because when I was an (annoying haha) 11 year old, this site meant a lot to me. Not to sound cheesy or anything… but this place has a lot of memories associated with it! For a lot of you guys too, I’m sure. I guess I just made this post to say bye to this place and also bye to anyone that I have actually talked to. I hope you all have great lives and fulfill all your dreams <3
Love Silver

Hi, guys. :) I haven’t been actually written anything here for more than six months, but I don’t really have anything more to contribute.
So how have you guys been? Looks like there’s an argument… again. I wholeheartedly don’t grasp why LBC even tries to accomplish. I know he’s feigning good will, but really all he’s doing is bullying a bunch of kids of the internet. Why?? I don’t know. There’ll always be a stream of new people on this goal; it’s going to be very hard (most likely impossible) to convince them all.
I don’t really have much else to say, besides I’m thinking of possibly doing one of those story things again :D
