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.

send a message in a bottle & get a reply
i have done this

I sent a message in a plastic bottle when I was younger. Someone further down the coast found it and wrote back saying she combs the beach daily and has found 10 messages in bottles in her life. I was so excited.

Weigh 120 pounds again
Let me help

I lead a healthy lifestyle and am very interested in nutrition. I worked at a health food store. I try to exercise regularly. I have never been very much over 120 and I am fairly tall. If anyone is serious about losing weight and needs support or advice, let me know and I will be glad to help create eating plans and provide tips. Good luck.

Get my nose pierced.
Didn't really hurt

The pain was not bad. I had it done with a needle. Less pain than giving blood.
