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.

i love to dance i do

if only I could do more. I’m always wanting to learn more. I want to salsa, tango, swing (dance!), tap, disco, ballroom- anything i can! Everybody should dance

be fluent in French
how i wish i could...

I am so determined to do this! Am studying first year university French this year as oppsed to advanced higher and it is tough. the frustrating thing is that I understand French when I hear it, and my accent is almost perfect. But it’s the goddam grammar that really gets me. I think it’s maybe because we don’t really understand tense formation in our own language? Must spend more time on it anway… wish you all good luck
