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.

I’ve been baaaaaaaaaaad…..... but… my goal is to officially lose weight and I think I can deal. With school so frequently and very little money and possibly a gym membership at the place near my school, I’m hoping to fit into that Dr. Dog shirt in no time :) 2 years ago

ohlordyNewly Vegan

My husband and I decided to take on a vegan diet at the end of December in 2011. We started with the dairy around mid-december and went completely vegan by December 30th. We have maintained ever since, but it’s been tough with our schedules. I think it will be easier once I graduate in 2 months and wont have any busy work with classes. So far, i’m loving every part of it. I dont want to ever go back to eating meat or animal products. Long Beach Vegan Eatery has made dining out still a tasty possibility for us. 2 years ago

What else can I say that hasn’t already been written about? 4 years ago

AsheLittle over two years.

It seems like longer. I don’t remember what animal tastes like. I never wanted to ask too much of myself, so I have eaten some things that contained milk products (candy, ranch dressing at restaurants, stuff like that.)
Sometimes I have conversations with people that make me want to say “screw it” and sometimes I have conversations with people that make me really proud of myself. There are ups and downs with everything.
Important thing is, when I go to bed at night, I know that I am doing something that I believe in, even if everyone else doesn’t agree. 4 years ago

DO it for your friends.
DO it for the boys.
DO it for a better body.

DO it for the The World.

Jesus loves the little animals too.

Almost 6 months!!

I went to my pediatrician yesterday for a yearly checkup and she said I was perfectly healthy, my blood tests came back “excellent”, and there are absolutely no signs of anemia! I managed to go without a multivitamin for a few months, and I’m still perfectly healthy. I am, however, returning to taking a multivitamin and mineral as well as a calcium/magnesium supplement. The calcium is especially important. 6 years ago


Almost 4 months now! yay! I just need to keep chugging along. 6 years ago

*Mama Bear*I guess

I can’t ‘stay vegan’ when I’ve been off track for so long…
So ‘Go vegan (again)’ is a more suitable goal.
Man… I’ve gone from extreme to extreme. From meat eater to ovo-lacto vegetarian, to the most extremist of all vegans… If I met now with ‘me from 3 years’ ago, I would get my ass kicked so bad!!

Now I’m sort of a ‘pescarian’... not out of choice, but out of convenience, and not too proud of it, really :( Just haven’t had the energy to take care of my dieting lifestyle.
Shame on me, really! I’m going against all my ethical beliefs, and there’s no excuse for that. 6 years ago

I’ve been here for 2 years now so I’m pretty well adjusted.(even through a 2 week long winter of nothing but biscuits and fried rice.) It’s honestly been worth it._. 6 years ago
