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.

take more/better pictuers (read all 3 entries…)
Complete!

I got a new camera….yeah! I can actually take nice pictures all the time!



learn the thriller dance (read all 3 entries…)
Complete

While this comes months late, I have official accomplished this goal twice! After our school musical, I decided to learn the rest of the dance by watching the music video. This was fun in itself but when our youth group had a talent show, I taught two others and we performed the dance. It was awesome! We dressed as zombies and just had a great time with it.
A couple months later, during a dance party in Paris (that sounds so cool!) Thriller came on so obviously I had to do the dance. One of my friends that had learnt it for the talent show was also on the trip so her and I total hit up the dance floor and rocked it out!
Now, my high school band is performing Thriller for our homecoming show this weekend. I’m totally thrilled for it (no pun intended), unfortainately I won’t be able to do the show because I’m in the homecoming court.
So all and all, this goal has been absolutely worth it in every sense!



learn to drive (read all 11 entries…)
Finished!

So I’ve finally gotten my driver’s license! It was quite an exciting day; it was actually graduation day for the class before me. And everyone in the band found out because my loving friend decided to announce it! But don’t fear fellow driver’s, I’m a smart, safe driver!
