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.

kiss a girl
Not sure if it counts

Achieved this at the strip club (two goals in one night!) Not sure if i count it, but technically I have now kissed a girl, two in fact ;)

visit a strip club
worth the wait...

Well it took 4 years, but i finally convinced someone to take me to a strip club. I really thought it would be easy to find a guy to take me, evidently not! My boyfriend finally agreed to take me after I told him a guy from work had offered. I’ve only been asking my boyfriend to go for more than a year sigh Anyway at the end of the day I had a blast, cant wait to go again

Make truffles for Christmas
One step closer to learning to cook

Took me ages to make enough for the guys at work, and I only got to eat 2! They were pretty good :) discovered that I do not own scales, probably something i need if i am wanting to cook more
