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.

Writing makes me happy =) I’ve got hundreds and hundreds of pages, if not thousands of stuff I’ve written. Even when I have writer’s block, I write, even though it’s crap. Few people understand how frikin awesome writing is 5 years ago

rye_jWeird experiment

I quickly jotted down what I was thinking for 2 days, and re-wrote it down later to see clearly what I think about! Couldn’t believe what goes through my head! I also found out when I’m at home I don’t really think about anything at all compared to when I’m outside. 6 years ago


i used to write all the time… 6 years ago


My ultimate life goal is to become a world-renowned fiction author. I can’t get there if I don’t write anything. The time is now for me to carpe diem. 6 years ago

rosiewosieI write everything down

I am a write down freak. I don’t know why. Perhaps because I’m sort of a messy person, yet still a perfectionist. 6 years ago

k35k87well..uni work is a must

and so far i’ve written a 15000 word piece….which i am proofreading/editing right now!
as well a 6000 words piece/
i hope i can carry on with this goal after uni although it is hard.
but reading back over this 15000 word piece, i know its probably worth it even if it doesnt come to anything.

does anyone know any place, like photobucket, where i could save my work online instead of on a USB or PC?just in case it all goes wrong! 6 years ago
