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.

aurelianaOff to a good start!

Been doing surprisingly well at this! Then again, it may be because of the long drive to Nashville and the wedding I had to attend there. Very busy times. But I’m back in my apartment now, and my summer class starts tomorrow—- so I’ve got to stay on top of my game.

1. Fully impress my entomology professor with well thought-out questions and thorough homework completion.
2. Not be scared of bugs. 7 months ago

ALLthechocolateKeep Busy

I found the best way for me to watch less T.V. was to work towards gaining skills that I’d been meaning to for ages, such as creative writing and learning how to hand sew my torn clothes. 8 months ago

I never watch TV unless it is at my mother’s house, then I remember how much I don’t miss it! 12 months ago

mlarmaladeTime Management

I tend to fall into the dark pit that is Netflix, and I find myself procrastinating like crazy. I’d like to limit myself to one episode (of whatever I’m watching) a day.
It’s not that I think tv is a complete waste of time, it’s just that I could pretty much spend a whole weekend in bed binge-watching stuff, even though I have a lot of projects going on right now that I’m really excited about. 13 months ago
