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.

Mary GeraldineDuring my trip... the beach to visit Stephanie, I finally got to purchase my ukulele and add this goal to my list. So far I’ve learned 6 chords; C, F, G, D, A, & Am. I have absolutely no idea where I am supposed to go from there. Haha. :v

PS Thanks to Stephanie for taking a picture of me before it was too late! 2 years ago

My car keeps breaking down. Keeps. Breaking. Down. I’m having to board my dogs. By the time I get there, I’m going to have spent $800 in order to do so. But it’s all good. We will make it and we will be grilling hot dogs on the beach!! :v 2 years ago

Mary GeraldineSomeone...

...hit the mailbox. So I guess we will be getting a new one. Bought some things in order to start a garden. I also have some old tires and an old toilet that I am going to use as planters. I think I might even go ahead and build that reptile pen that I’ve been talking about for the last million years. I don’t have any box turtles anymore but I have a big ole sulcata baby that could use a summer house.

Mary GeraldineThe week of...

...Independence Day is what we are striving for. It’s pretty much our last opportunity before classes are over and Stephanie comes home. The manchild has decided to come with us and that’s fine by me as long as we can make suitable arrangements for the dogs etc. One of my dogs suffered from heat exhaustion recently and so we are keeping an extra close eye on their behavior at the moment. A few of them might have to be boarded and the rest cared for by a dog sitter. We will see. I have about a million swimsuits between myself and my baby. I bought the manchild a father’s day gift that will come in handy on the beach as well. He just doesn’t know it yet. I also just had new brakes and tires installed on my car. So we are definitely preparing… 2 years ago
