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.

Buy a House
Almost there

We actually had an offer accepted nearly two months ago. Since then we’ve had an inspection, applied for a mortgage, arranged insurance, and… I think that’s it. We close on June 2nd, but we probably won’t move in until later in June, after the wedding.



see the next total solar eclipse (read all 3 entries…)
Clear skies!

We had a great trip to Turkey! For a while, we were a little worried about the clouds, but the skies stayed clear for the whole time and it was amazing.

It’s surprising, despite this being my fourth total eclipse, I still got very excited in the last few minutes before totality. And the actual totality was great. My photos are on another computer now, will post shortly.



go to bed earlier (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

I’ve been setting my alarm to make sure I get up early, hoping that eventually I’ll be too tired to stay up as late as I have been, but so far I’m still tired, but going to bed no earlier. Friday night I actually went to bed a little after one, then thought of something, got up, and stayed online until past 2am.
