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.

have my own chickens to lay free-range eggs
A new pet??

I am looking forward to moving within the next year. I am looking for a place with a little piece of land for my dogs. While looking through some photos I saw a old picture of me hugging a rooster and it made me remember my old family home with chickens running around. I am excited to find a home and get my first chicken and to collect her first layed egg.

donate hair to Locks of Love
Try a new look

Every since I little I have had super long hair. The longest it has been was when it would touch my waist all through my middle school years. Since than I have been keeping it shoulder length. Now I want to grow it out super long again and donate it. The only pain is that it can be a little difficult to wash and brush but anything is worth enduring if it will be put to good use.

milk a cow
In touch with nature

I have always wanted to be hands on, and how much more hands on can you get than milking a cow???
I have no clue where to go to do this but I hope that whenever I get a chance to do this that I dont end up making a fool of myself by getting no milk lol.
