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.

Send a thank you note to my Great Aunt Arliss
I Finally did it!

Thanks to 43 things and my twin sis I finally mailed my thank you cards to Aunt Arliss. Last October I gathered up all the cards I had written and not sent into one envelope in hopes to send them all at once. Last December I got her a beautiful Christmas card including a great picture of the kids. I intended on sending both envelopes at the same time. There they sat, in my van stamped and addressed missing only a zipcode. Now I know how easy it is to find a zipcode. In fact I even have the site on my favorites yet I continued to procrastinate till this morning when I read Amy’s Blog.

Finally I did it! Freedom! The weight is finally lifted! I can breath. Of course Kaleb’s birthday is coming up in April then I’ve got to start over again.

Hey, I wonder what our Great Aunt will think receiving more than 5 cards in one day. Hey Amy, you didn’t happen to tape any gold dollars to yours did you?


I want to:
