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 an animal

i would love to rescue an animal. there are some stray cats that walk around my block and they dont get fed. i want to feed them and help them so that they can live out their “kitty” lives fully. it would also warm my heart to help those cats in need. but you see, the thing is, my dog doesnt like the cats and wants to bark at them and all my neighbors hate the cats. so if i wanted to, my parents probably wouldnt let me. all my neighbors want the cats to go away, but i feel so bad for them. i think there are like 5 or 6 of the same cat around plus 2 little baby kittens of a different breed of cat. no one knows where those cats came from, since they are babies. there is no sign of parents around. but, above all, I WILL SAVE THOSE CATS!! regardless of what my neighbors say and think.
