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.

file my 2013 taxes
Done on Time

On Monday I tracked down all the necessary paperwork and even went to the bank to research an old deposit from last year. Two hours later I had filed federal and local online, and had my state taxes printed to send via mail. It was mailed out on the morning of the 15th.



Never Forget Travis (read all 38 entries…)
Happy Birthday

Today Travis would have been 44. He’s been on my mind all week. I have to go to a funeral home today for someone who lived a long life and died of old age. I wonder what Travis would have been like at 44, what he would have accomplished with his life.



Wish Molliemoonlight a super California-dreamin,' Wicked Lady dining and takin' Cinderella to the ball Happy Birthday on 15 February 2014 so dazzling that she achieves all of this week's goals (and has fun, too)!
Happy Belated Birthday

I’m almost two weeks tardy for this birthday wish. Guess I am late to the ball, so I hope there isn’t a wicked lady curse on my horizon. Here are my wishes for you, my friend, for the coming year:

May you find the perfect recipe for macaroons that works for you. May you meet someone on the internet that you would like to visit a cemetery with. And may you make the time to visit the Hoover Dam so you can stand in two states at once.
