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.

go fishing (read all 2 entries…)
I caught one!

I finally went fishing for real while I was visiting family in New York. I actually caught a bass too! It was so exhilirating, and so exciting! My cousin also caught an eel that day. We threw them back, but we still go photos. I would LOVE to fish again.

sing in public (read all 2 entries…)

A karaoke bar counts, haha. It didn’t take as long for me to gather up the courage as I thought, and I can’t believe how much I got into it. The people seemed to enjoy it as well :)

I sing at the bus stop all the time and while I’m walking around now as well. I’m not scared of people catching me singing anymore. In fact, I think people should sing and dance around ALL the time. The world would be a much better place.

get my third tattoo

My third tattoo is a solid silhouette of a raven behind my left arm. I need at least two more to keep it an odd number :P
