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.

Tonya =)And again...

Saturday night i went back out to Alex’s Bar in Long Beach. This is getting a little bit easier every time!

I even got in free this time because my friend Quincy that I met the first night there was working the door! Bonus! 7 years ago

Tonya =)Going Solo

I did it again.

I drove out to a bar last night to see a few bands play and it was pretty fun.

One of the bands that played was one of the same bands that I saw last time I ventured out alone and have kept in contact with via Myspace… so I guess I wasn’t completely alone.

I’ve been trying to get a few of my friends interested in going to these things with me, but it seems that we always have conflicting schedules =/

So until I get someone to go with me, I guess I’ll continue to go alone… after all, there will always be more people to meet. :o) 7 years ago

Tonya =)Not too painful...

Last Friday I went to a bar in Long Beach with some friends to see some bands play. It was a great little bar that has live music every weekend.

So two days later when I wanted to go again and had noone to drag along, I just went alone…

...and it wasn’t so bad. It was actually really fun! I spent my last $10 to get in, and had absolutely no money to even get a drink, but I soon made friends with the bartender. the bouncer (that’s me and him in the picture) and a guy whose credit card I found out in the parking lot (who turned out to be in one of the bands).

I ended up meeting 4 or 5 people who I’ve kept in touch with through Myspace and am planning to go hang out with again.

When I was on my way to the bar alone, I had reservations and have to admit I also had those “nervous butterflies” in my stomach, but that all went away once I just relaxed and started talking to people.

I think the key is to go somewhere where you have something in common with the other people who are there… in this case, we’d all gone there for the live music. Whatever works, right? 7 years ago


this is a good goal, sometimes i dont go to places becuase i dont have someone to go, i want to change so bad thoughts i have when i have to do this 7 years ago
