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.

Visit my Grandmas grave
I miss you grandma

I couldn’t cry at the funeral. I was too mad to cry. I loved you more than anyone. You were so sweet and kind to everyone. You are are my inspiration to keep going when things get tough. You were a brave and strong woman… even if you were tiny. I loved you and I still do. It has been five years and I still have not been to your grave. It is not even far. I think I am ready now to go and see you.



go to Mexico

I will go someday.

Today is my birthday... one hour left

I am 26 today. I want this year to be a better one than I have ever had. I want to embrace myself and mature. I want to be a great mom and wife. I want to get creative and artful and learn about the world around me. I want to say on this day next year… “wow, what a great year!”
