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.

LeemyluIt Begins ^_^

Just finished The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut. I didn’t like much of the last third of it for whatever reason. Bored maybe. But the epilogue, especially the last line, made me happy.

Now I’m on to read A Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin! 1 year ago

MillieMarch100 Books in A Year

This goal, I started last year, and I have until the end of May. 12 Weeks left, and I have 31 books left to go! How are you guys doing?? I have found that the app Audible has helped a lot. I listen to audiobooks all day at work and when I am cleaning my house, and driving in my car. At home, I mostly read books, but at times when I can’t I listen to them. 2 years ago

rachtothesmyI did it!

I can’t believe that I actually did it! It took me four years to complete this goal and it was completely worth it. I read a ton of great books and I can’t help but notice that my reading speed seems to have gone up. This year I’m trying for 125. 2 years ago


I finished 102 books in 2011. 2 years ago
