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.

CassiemcgruberMy penpal forgot about me :(

I got a vegan penpal and we wrote a few letters back and forth but she hasnt written me in a looong time. I think i need a new one! 3 years ago


I’ve added myself on a penpal-site, and I’ve come in contact with a nice possible penpal.

I won’t consider this goal fulfilled until we either sent 10 full-long mail or still have good contact after Christmas. 3 years ago

Silent_GConfession of a cynical girl

This is Vivienne. The whole idea of getting a real friend on the internet is kinda stupid, but I am still willing to give it a shot.
First of all, I am a chinese, so do stay clear if you are an evil racist.Save the sick jokes about tiny asians to yourselves.

I may sound a little bit of cynical,but I am a super good listener,and I really need an american to teach my stuff about life in american because I am about to go there to study.

So,after reading a whole sack of crap you are still willing to be my penpal, do e-mail me :) 3 years ago
