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 my nose pierced.
A story of ´ouch´

This was the actual worst piercing I´ve done in my life. I went to a professional, but still it wouldn´t heal. There was even this bump growing and making it even more ugly.
What can I say – I got bored of it and ended up not being my nosepiercing anymore!

go on a road trip with no predetermined destination (read all 2 entries…)

While our visit in San Francisco, we had this rental car for one day. First, we went to Muir Woods. That was the actual reason why we rented a car – it´s far away from the inner city!
After a lunch in a small town outside Muir Woods we decided to go further away… We had an GPS navigating system, but anyway… Just to find the way was as hard as knowing where to go more exact!
The day ended up with a lot (too much for me) driving on the highway… Way more boring than I thought it would be, with all that excitement about not knowing what was to be seen…!

See all entries ...
