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.

russellviiiUnusual Pattern Begins to Emerge

I was proud to have 29 subscribers back in October. I picked up another one, getting me up to 30.

That didn’t last very long. I dropped down to 28 again within a few days.

Then it happened. The computer died. My 43T time dropped down to almost nothing for a couple of weeks.

As I signed back on for the first time one of thoughts that went through my head was, “I wonder how many subscribers I’ve lost by being out for so long.”

Does anybody have any idea what happened in that time? 5 years ago

Pete BraniganOne Last Plea!!!!

Lorraine JamesI Know Who You Are!

There’s one person whom I suspect is reading this without my knowledge. All I have to say is that what we had is over and that I don’t want to be hurt anymore. Good-bye. She’s very beautiful and I hope she makes you very happy. 6 years ago

Welcome to Iowa and Wisconsin. The RoR8 is growing again! 6 years ago



I’m pretty much adopting this goal out of sheer boredom. If you’re subscribed to me and you want to let me know it, that’s great! If not, please feel free to revel in your anonymity. I’ll never know who you are if you don’t voluntarily tell me. Either way, I’ll more than likely mark this goal as completed within the week. : ) 6 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous Sufficiency87!!!

Welcome #87!!! It’s been more than 2 months since I had 87 subscribers. It’s pretty cool. It seems I get more subscribers when I don’t post as much, but if I don’t post enough, then I lose.

I think I read Todd Schoonover talked about losing subscribers when he posts too much. 6 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyBack to #86

I’ve had 3 people add me to their subscription in the past 2-3 weeks. Thank you.

Enjoy your stay!! 6 years ago

~ John Lee ~Two New Subscribers

hmmmmm … last time I gained a few, I mentioned it here and poof – they left without even saying goodbye … 6 years ago

russellviiiSo who bailed on me?

My number of people subscribed to me, as well as number of people to whom I am subscribed, both decreased by one yesterday. I also noticed that a few items of mine have one cheer fewer.

I assume that it means someone pulled the plug on their 43T membership. I can’t figure out who it would be. 6 years ago

Lorraine JamesSend Me a Message!

C’mon! Write to me! Make it anonymous if you can, if that can be done on here. If you think it’ll complicate things, then don’t, but…..well, if you really don’t want to. 6 years ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyBack to #82

Lost another subscriber. I’m either posting too much, not enough, or my topics are too controversial, or people are cleaning house, or deleting themselves. Sigh.

Oh well. 6 years ago

Welcome #87the subscriber. This might be a new number for me. Right now I’m a little too lazy to look to see what Greek Isle it is. Will update later, but I’m sure it’s some cool place.

Bless you!!! 6 years ago
