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.

Own ALL 10 Seasons of Friends on DVD
Start the Collection... again

Use to have seasons 1-4 but due to financial dificulties, I had to pawn them off… Anyway, I’ve started this collection again.. Slightly backwards. I recently aquired season 9 of Friends as a late birthday gift from my dear brother… :)

get another tattoo (read all 3 entries…)
Time to wait in this...

Well I can’t do this for at least 8 more months…

Quit Smoking (read all 2 entries…)
As of today.... I quit!

Well this goal got sped up a fair bit when about a week ago I found out I was pregnant. I swore the day I found out I was pregnant, I’d quit smoking… well that didn’t work entirely, but as of this moment, I have quit! I think at first I didn’t believe I was pregnant (or something) so I continued… Either way, I have done this now as it is healthier for my baby and me. So far I’m doing alright with it… We shall see what the days bring…

See all entries ...
