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.

LboydThere was this one time

that i ran around town in a bear suit. it was worth it. 7 years ago

monkeyinmaineNo closer to this goal... dammit

Well… I’ve been away and some goals have suffered, others have flourished, but I digress. But the poor bear suit goal languishes on the shelf. Time to dust it off.

After all, it will be fall soon, perfect weather for a bear suit. All the fashion mags say so. 7 years ago

monkeyinmaineNo bear suits!

Can you believe it? This silly town of mine has no bear suits. I’ve called all the costume places and the closest they have is a gorilla suit. Where’s the love for the bears?

One place told me they could ORDER a bear mascot suit for a mere $975.00. For crying out loud.

I’m not giving up though. I will be humping people in public by July. That is my goal. I wonder if I’ll get nailed with a tranquilizer gun? 7 years ago


I will find a bear suit and I will complete this goal. Then I will put the video up on You Tube.

I might be looking forward to this just a little too much. 7 years ago
