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.

Her_Bloody_Wings$? A bunch of change

I have loaned all of my cash to my mother, but I’m getting it all back when she gets her taxes, which should be in a week or so.

Going to get $2592!!!

Get to cross off this goal then, but I’m going to try to save my $ and not let it go under 2k. I need to get a job. I’m going to try to save to 3k next. I think I’ll keep this goal for a while and just keep doing it.

I really need a vehicle and a license, so I need all the money I can get.

DollyDONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! took me 4 months!

250 a month. No shopping, and having (even if they laugh) support from my family, before Shopping or in front of the make up sale, I’ll call my Mom or my hubby and also I got a friend to call. So I wanted to buy this flatware set for $600 dlls. I called a friend I explained the Why… and she said NO. and why… I can’t afford it. Bcuz I had 800 dlls so I thought I could spend it. She said NO 800 is short of your goal, and u can’t afford a credit card bill. SO I left it alone. for New year Eve I gor a flat ware set from my father in law as a gift!!! totally loved spent $0 (was a gift) and now $1000.05 dlls sit on my savings account. New Goal $2000… I hope to see your name there too!! 11 months ago

This will be much easier now that I have a job!
It will probably take a few months, though. 11 months ago
