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.

fancy doesnt doesnt like too many other dogs, but she does like my friend Suzannes dachsund, Ellie. So, whenever I know I’m going to her house- I bring Fancy. 6 years ago


jennyblazeshe's too gangsta

Fancy & I went to central park last week to meet up with my friend. As we walked the perimeter, she saw the Horses (pulling cariages) and she lunged right at them. Thank GOD she was on a leash. people just laughed. she’s too gangsta for central park. she’s got beef with the horses!! 6 years ago

WinglessAngelRain Rain Go Away...Little River Wants To Play

The bark park is one big mud puddle, NOT for my poodle! My puppy River is all white! 7 years ago


WinglessAngelMy River deserves better

My baby is such a good dog and he loves to run free. His 1st birthday is in 2 days. Taking him to the bark park is hard right now because it is full of mud and it;s hard for me to bath him because of my pain. Also the gas money to get him there is hard to come by. I walk him around home but I can’t run so he can’t and the city has a law about tethering dogs in my own yard.
But I will work hard to get him there as much as possible. 7 years ago


jennyblazeshe hates other dogs...

so i took her with me to SOHO. it was too cold for a little ass dog like her to be walking all day, so she was in my bag most of the time… but i know she enjoys it because she behaves when i put her in the bag. i guess, since she gets lonely at home all day she knows if she wants to go with me- she better act right. she just hates other animals. fucked up right? what can i do though- shes already 12 yrs old. people think shes a puppy though. she just has a very young attitude i guess

ManaiaDog parks can be dangerous places

People regularly take sick, aggressive or just plain rude dogs to dog parks, and many of those people are clueless that they’re doing anything wrong.

I’ve taken my dog to the dog park a few times, cos I thought he’d have a lot of fun. However, I won’t be doing it any more after a few bad experiences with bullying and/or aggressive and/or unsupervised dogs. I’ve learned that it’s safer to exercise him on his own, or with a small group of dogs that I know well. It’s just not worth the risk to turn him loose with strange dogs with unknown temperaments, whose owners may be irresponsible dropkicks.

I would especially NEVER take a puppy to a dog park. One bad experience can ruin a young pup’s temperament for life, making it permanently fearful or aggressive towards strange dogs. 7 years ago


norikoismtoday at the belltown doggy park.

it has been months since i last took her to this dog park. my friend’s coworker brought her doggy out as well, so we were hoping it will be a cute doggy playdate.

well, wrong.

ivy is basically a crowd controller. that annoying classmate you had that bosses you around and tell you to stop having fun. unfortunately her doggy boyfriend ran off with other new firends and ivy was left alone playing with us.

but she seemed very happy as usual. i guess as long as she is happy- i should be content. 8 years ago
