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.

wish I knew where to find that SH group so I can take a peek. Plus: I love no. 4!
Our men mostly have great singing voices but will rarely use them for more than jest.
I seriously dig a nice men’s voice (which is why I am puzzled with my newly found Gotye obsession). It can even be an aphrodisiac. Paul still hasn’t noticed he could hum me into the sack. 2 years ago

redbanditaO honey.

From my perspective, reading your entire oevre on this goal, it gets harder and harder to write a comment that does not go through the old relax-it’s-going-to-happen routine.
I seriously believe that you will have that baby of yours, but we both know that I believe it because I WANT it so much for you. I have no effing idea if cycle two or three will be successful or not. But I wish it so for you!
You are smart reflecting on possible downfalls at christmas time before you see your family. Do what you feels is right. You are an intelligent woman and you know that you should be extra kind to yourself after the marathon that’s already behind you. So if they are annoying you, go for a walk.
Love you, sweetie! 3 years ago
