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.

lose pregnancy weight
Be Healthy During Pregnancy

Healthy eating (not dieting), daily walking, and getting sleep (harder for some new mommies than others) were the main factors in getting back into my regular clothes. Also, DON’T STRESS about it! It took 9 months to put the weight on and it will take time to get it off! Enjoy your baby and be active with him/her.

keep the house plants alive

I kept the plant alive, although my husband kept saying “shouldn’t we throw away that dead plant?!” I told him “its alive, it just looks that way.” I’m still sticking to my story, but we through the plant away last week.

support the underdog
The Underdog

The underdog I am referring to are the Denver Broncos. They WERE playing terribly for a few years, but I stayed true to them. Now, things are looking up!

have a healthy baby
Healthy Baby Girl!

After going to a Reproductive Endocrinologist, having surgery for endometriosis, 1 IUI, 1 miscarriage and 3 years later… I gave birth to a healthy baby girl! Its already the most meaningful thing I have ever done. I am so thankful.

African Dancing
ITs harder than it looks

I found that there is actually a method to this ‘mad dacing.’ It is a fantastic beat and I’ve got to go again!

get a job using my college degree
I Got One!

I am working at a non-profit and I am glad I did not settle into the corporate world.

cry out of happiness
The best feeling ever

Crying from sheer happiness is one of the most euphoric feelings I have ever experienced. It has resulted from things such as; feeling loved, loving someone else, a sense of goodness in the world…
