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.

My current car has a ridiculous amount of miles on it, and mechanical issues. Getting a newer car will help me with job opportunities and keep me from breaking down on the side of the road! Time to save up! 19 months ago

MichelleFinally did it!

I bought a ‘07 Pontiac G6. I broke my old car’s front strut somehow. The spring snapped in two, so I figured why pay to get it repaired when I was trading it in soon anyway. 7 years ago


I’ve never owned a brand new car. I’ve had an ‘83 Chevy Caprice, ‘96 Ford Mustang, and a ‘02 Ford Focus. I’m planning to get a brand spankin’ new Pontiac G6 within the next year or so. I can’t wait! 7 years ago

LaylersBye bye Delorian

I finally got rid of my old car that was as old as me and I had never been happier than the moment I turned it over to my sister to enjoy! -9 years ago
