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.

Definitely part of my list. Nothing else (besides finding true love that is reciprocated) matters at this point. 6 years ago

It must be an act of a caring mother to miss her daughter and still hold the tears so that her sons can have a good thanksgiving. Once you give birth you no longer own your heart. You can’t give it to a mate again without first thinking of what is best for the children. And sometimes their smiles can mend the biggest hole.. 7 years ago

Ida Matilda Wrighte-mailing is part of my caring

I have sent about 20 emails to police departments in KY and about 5 other startes.. I have also sent about 15 to animal shelters.

I like doing this to have them send encourageing words or care packages to my children. So they can be encouraged to follow their dreams and not fall into the traps that I have.

I believe in them.

Christian is going to be a cop.

Noah a vet.. fireman .. artist .. or a k9 police

Charity a artist.. a song writer… a basket ball player.. a baby doctor

Yea they already know.. And I know when they are ready they will be the best they are. 7 years ago

Ida Matilda WrightReport Card Day

He has to bring 3 F’s up by doing his homework…
I didn’t throw a fit, but I know he can do it. The days he doesn’t do his homework he will have to do both the next day and can’t go outside/ 7 years ago

Ida Matilda Wrightlove and kind

Being a loving and kind mother sometimes is hard to see… Sometimes loving must be used rather than kindness.

There is so much out there to take our children from.. drugs, car crashes, sucide, anything..

The Bible says to honor father that your days will be long up on the earth…. well it is hard for me to see my children hurt at all.. but sometimes when they are yelling at me to ground them or stop my self from petting them… I love them I want them to live long on this earth 7 years ago

Ida Matilda WrightToday

Today I bought two of a few things from Wal-Mart for a friend that even brings plates over to the boys when she cooks. Just a way to say thanks, she said that it was very nice…. I like being nice to those that have such big hearts..

I challenge you all to make sure that the people who care know how important they are to you. It just wouldn’t be the same world without them. 7 years ago
