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.

Join AmeriCorps

I’ve done a lot of volunteer work in the past that I enjoyed so I was automatically drawn to americorps. I just discovered the financial help I would receive for college and I am set. I have yet to decide when to apply considering I am still in school but I hope I can very soon. It seems to be a great opportunity!

I just decided today to start this and I’ve already read four books – hey, it’s a start! I also own many of the books and have been meaning to read them…I can’t wait to read through all of them!!

1. ULYSSES by James Joyce
2. THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald
5. BRAVE NEW WORLD by Aldous Huxley
31. ANIMAL FARM by George Orwell

Join the Peace Corps

I feel this would make a huge impact on my life. I am very interested in helping people. I am not yet – but will soon to be – eighteen and I also have epilepsy (although, it hasn’t been active for years). I’ve been trying to do as much volunteer work as possible and I’m hoping that this will actually happen – after I graduate from college that is.
