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.

julia2still not fixed

I bought a new dress…. the last one I bought didn’t work out all that well, and I still haven’t worn it anywhere. I have an event next weekend, and I had to have a cocktail dress. I tried to just borrow one, but they didn’t look very good on me. So, I bought a new one… but I think I still want the old one fixed. 4 years ago

julia2new black dress

I still want to fix the zipper, but I just bought a new black dress online! Can’t wait to get it. Should arrive in 10 days or so… we’ll see how it fits. 5 years ago

julia2rip off, rip out

I bought this dress to go on our first cruise- 25th anniversary. I wore it once. The next year we decide to go on another cruise, I remembered that the zipper didn’t work very well- it kept sticking. I took it to the seamstress to have it replaced. When I went to put it on for the formal dinner- it broke. I had to wear a casual- not so great dress instead, bummer. I don’t think the zipper was really replaced. I think they ripped me off. I was going to confront them- I kept thinking I would to it tomorrow (really I wanted my husband to do it for me, cause I’m a chicken) so I never went. Now I think I should just do it myself. I need to rip it out and do it. It has been 8 months, I’m afraid the dress will go out of style before I get around to it. 7 years ago
