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.

Get a copy of "Wreck this Journal", by Keri Smith. Then go ahead and wreck it!

Someone gave it to me as a present, and I’ve been steadily wrecking it ever since. My favorite page has been the “stain blog” :)

buy a suitcase

Theory: if I buy my own suitcase, I’m more likely to travel.
I want independence.

buy a polaroid camera
Cliché Dreams

I’ve always loved the washed out nostalgic feel of old polaroids. I really want a camera of my own so that when I grow old I can look back on the snapshots of my earlier life and smile. Even though polaroids have become cool in an almost cliché way, I still envy those who have one.
