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.

fall in love again
Weird goal

I fell in love again. And was torn into thousands of little pieces again. And now am recovering. With the knowledge of the pain that comesWith love do I want it again? Part of me says yes and the other says hell no.

visit all 50 states
I didn't realize it, but this is now a goal

It says, On average this goal takes 35 years to complete. I’ll beat that. I’ve already been to a few places, which I’ll colorfully list with a graphic. But the rest, well, if there’s a will, there is a way.

go blonde

tommorow im going to try to get an appointment.
snap, im super excited, and kinda really nervous.
i’ve never really died my hair before…and really, the only thing pretty about me is my hair, which is probably why i want to change it. i dont know, it doesnt make sense, but i guess i hate that people only notice me because of my hair.
its not even pretty anyways. its kinda red, but muddy, like i rolled in dirt.
