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.

Started attending this amazing church. Can’t wait to get connected and get involved. A little nervous about meeting new folks but it will be exciting.

graduate college

I have 4 classes remaining and a semester of student teaching which means I am predicted to graduate next December. Wow, I’m getting pumped!

become more spiritual

I feel that in this new year I want to abide in Him. For the past few months I have really started to become more connected to God. At this point in my life I’ve started to realize what I need most and that it is Him. My love for Him grows deeper and I want to learn more. He is my rock, and he gives me purpose.
