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.

Really? Really.

the peer pressure is getting to me. also, finding out about something cool that i missed and having someone be like “oh, hey, well i facebooked you about it” really? thanks i haven’t been on in literally three months, you couldn’t have just texted me, or heaven forbid called me? really? and now you are upset that i wasn’t there. omg.

lose 25 pounds

I was a dancer (ballet, modern, jazz, tap…) for just over 12 years. i had to quit when college got too consuming and my income was hurting. I was what was considered “naturally thin”. however, since i havn’t been very active in the past 3 years my stomach has seriously began to pooch. my arms are fine and my chin is still a single, but my stomach looks like a beer belly. not hot. i need to fix this.

Clean my car and keep it clean

it was always clean before i got married…
