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.

mooniebutt#4 Other Side

And this picture I actually took for this goal. We usually have a bunch more magnets (the word kind) but I think I took a ton down right after the new year. Exciting or what? 7 years ago

mooniebutt#3 Front of Fridge

I originally took this one because Taz made me the cute banana and Dawn magnets! The photo on the bottom is a picture from our wedding. There is also a picture of Hokey and Hello Kitty (and Moonie is cut out cause she didn’t like how she looked.) I’ll leave the rest for your viewing pleasure. 7 years ago

mooniebutt#2 Fun with Mirrors

I took this picture earlier this month. It was right before I left for an interview. I’ve had this little mirror on my fridge for over ten years, I bet. 7 years ago

mooniebutt#1 One Side

These first two picture I took before Dana asked me to join this goal. (It was around Valentines day, see the heart in the background?) I was actually taking a picture of Nookie, but you still can see the one side of my fridge in this picture. Nookie says, “What’s up!?” 7 years ago


I say it because it is true! 7 years ago

naughtyminx78Here's my fridge!

I’m with Dana on the magnet and photo front! 7 years ago

Dana is...bringing her own sunshineSoo..

Call me insane, but I think what a person puts on the fridge says a bit about them…I know some people think that magnets are cheesy, but I love mine, embrace them even. SO here is a pic of my fridge. (I’m going insane aren’t I?!). I hope others adopt this goal and share pictures too! :-)

Edit – The picture is of myself and Sophie B. Hawkins, after a concert she put on about 3 years ago. 7 years ago
