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.

lose 90 pounds
almost there!

I have lost 85 lbs. My goal is to lose 100. I gained weight after I posted I want to lose 90lbs. I had Adjustable Gastric Band surgery on October 7, 2011.

get a peace sign tattoo (read all 2 entries…)
My peace tattoo

My friend’s husband drew it up for me. I told him what elements I wanted in it. After a few months, I finally went to him and got the ink. It was my birthday present. I LOVE IT!

have a vegetable garden.
It was expensive at first, but worth it

By the time we bought the soil, then all the plants, it was quite costly up front. We had hardly NO weeds, so that was a blessing. Our green bell peppers didnt do well…neither did spaghetti squash or melon. Tomatoes, habanero peppers, cubanelle, and pole beans did great. We got about 5 eggplants. Cucumbers did so-so. I will definitely do it again next year.
