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.

Wish NaughtyMinx a Belated Clear-Head Birthday September 14th


Entries from everyone

FatboyslimHappy belated birthday Minxy!

I hope you had a wonderful day. x 5 years ago

RuthG"Clear" does not mean "empty", of course

Heehee! So good to see you back, naughtyminx, & here’s hoping you make great progress on your goals throughout your new year. Happy happy birthday!

P.S. I love your new goal “Visit 43 Things every day for 43 days.” Yay! 5 years ago

Todd SchoonoverHappy Belated Birthday

Even though Minx hasn’t been around much lately, she still deserved on-time birthday wishes (like all Virgos do). It’s understandable that she’s not been around much though. She’s spending time with her kids and working on real-life goals, which is truly way more important than playing on a silly website. In fact, this website was never intended to be a social community but one that helped people work on accomplishing their goals. The social aspect is a bonus. Of course it is nice when people touch base now and then, and when we can have fun and frivolous goals like these birthday greetings (though I’m sure the birthday recipient doesn’t consider them frivolous). So here are my wishes for Minx for the coming year:

May she continue to prove herself a good mother daily by doing things like teaching her son to read, write, swim & ride a bike as well as helping her daughter pass her GCSEs. May she spend some time each week getting rid of the clutter that will help her clean up her house and keep it clean. And may she get back on track with maintainng the blood sugar balance rules which will help her lose those 30 pounds. 5 years ago

Waterfall NymphDear Minx

You aren’t here right now, what with the baby and back to work and the 500 other things filling your days.

But I know you’ve had a lovely birthday, because what else could it be?

Happy happy Minxy! 5 years ago
