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.

Renee49My Brother is an actor

My little brother has been acting since he was 15. He never made it big, or even made much money for that matter, but he has never given up and he always has a gig. He gets more work now at age 48 than he did when he was in his 20’s. He also invented an alter-ego named Jackie Fontaine. He gets alot of work as Jackie and people love his character!

I guess he does it because he loves it.

Renee49got one on

One of my tweets was on the Top Tweets! It went something like this-”I always pick green as my favorite color because no one else ever does and I feel sorry for green”.
Is it pathetic that this means so much to me and even more sad that I stole it from my best friend in high school in 1971? 2 years ago

Renee49Patton Oswalt

gentle Tweets is my new disease. I just opened a twitter account and have been following Mr. Oswalt. One of his pastimes is creating gentle tweets. Here is an example: I took a sip of camomile tea from a small cup and placed the little cup on the little saucer.

So ridiculous—but not a ridiculous as some real facebook statuses I see. None of mine ever make the page. 2 years ago
