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.

seamuslowe53Get glasses

I have really bad eyesight and I’ve been meaning to get eyeglasses for a while now. My friend in Edmonton was the one who finally pushed me to get them. He said I mistook a guy with a beard for a girl with a scarf. I was ten feet away. 12 months ago

1forusquinting too see = eyes hurting and no fun

I had really good vision before, but I was noticing that I was having to squint to see more clearly and my eyes started to feel strained. I made an appointment to get an eye exam and I got glasses. My glasses make everything so much clearer now. 2 years ago


You do not want them. I need glasses for THE REST OF MY LIFE. 3 years ago

I was having trouble seeing the board at school. Everything just seemed so blurry from a distance. It wasn’t until I tried on my friend Lucas’s glasses that I realized that they helped me see everything so much clearer and sharper. I went to an eye doctor and got prescribed glasses! Yay! I only really use them at school, but I like them.

Everyone tells me that I look like a sexy librarian when I wear them. Haha. 6 years ago
