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.

rescue a pitbull
My sweet Josie May :)

I have volunteered at shelters since I was 13 years old and early on I developed a love for American Pit Bull Terriers. I live in Ohio and these dogs are unfairly misjudged and euthanized at a terrifying rate. Through other rescuers I know, I heard of a female pit bull who was thrown out of a moving car while she was pregnant. At the time her name was ”#1346” and she only had 24 hours before she was euthanized. I made the two hour drive to her and ended up adopting her that day! She has a lot of behavioral issues (for good reasons) but she has been such a joy in my life! Pit bulls are my favorite breed and once you have done proper research and know your state laws, I’d suggest them for everyone!
