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.

lose weight (read all 2 entries…)
a week ago...

I went to a friends house and stepped on the scale. It was the first time I had been on a scale in FOREVER!!! I couldn’t believe what it said. It was a wake up call. Losing weight has always been a goal of mine but I never stick to my weight loss plan. I have completely changed my diet and I can already seen a difference in my stomach, and the way I feel. I want to lose 30 pounds by the beginning of the summer… 6/21. That’s 2.7 lbs a week for 11 weeks. maybe i should aim for 20 instead. lol

learn spanish (again!)
4 years...

I took 4 years of Spanish in high school, and then a beginner spanish class in college, just so I could get an easy A. It’s been 3 years since my first year of college, and I can’t remember hardly any of the spanish that I had learned, I spoke and wrote it rather well. It’s kind of depressing. I want to relearn spanish so that I can communicate with the Spanish speaking citizens easier.
