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.

I got to see my Mom in June! It was great! 7 years ago


my mom works. parents are devorced. i live with my dad. she never calls me. whats wrong with this picture? 7 years ago

annairbmy messed up family

My parents got divorced four years ago and since then I haven’t seen my mom. This is only because my older brother was mad at her because she cheated on my dad. So, I became a follower. My dad always tells me how bad she is, like he doesn’t want me to see her. He told me she said she only married him so he could financially support her, and to have a son (my older brother) because she lost her other son through a previous divorce. I know I want to have a relationship with her when I am older, but I miss her so much right now. I don’t even know where she lives. My dad also hates her because she does drugs and stuff. My older brother feels my mom left us alone with no protection from my dad, who can be crazy sometimes, so my brother does drugs too. he threw his life away and he blames my mom. But I still want to see her, see what she’s doing… 8 years ago
