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.

Help my dog lose weight


Entries from everyone

sistinasRalphy is fat

Ralphy is a lab mutt. Ralphy has been my pal for more than seven years. Ralphy was around 65 pounds when I got him. He was supposedly a year and a half old at that point, but I think he was younger. Ralphy grew to be about 100 lbs, and is now at a hefty 123 lbs thanks to the fact that he loves butter, eats all the other dogs’ food, and doesn’t run with the other dogs at the dog park. The only thing Ralphy does at the park is lurk by the gate and try to hump whatever dog is coming in. Seriously. This is so he won’t have to run and try and chase the other dog down. Ralphy is lazy.

Ralphy now eats his food in his own room and is on a daily walking/running regimen. We’ll see how this goes! 3 years ago

suntzuyouHe's a Medical Oddity!

He’s a medical oddity: he’s a dog turning into a pig! Yep – too much caloric love has come his way. He’s a 62 pound Beagle. We love him – no doubt. But we want to keep him around for years to come and the vet has sternly warned me it may not happen if I DON’T get the weight off him. 9 years ago
