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.

Lisa HartIt's hard to fill in when it's been years... but here we go!~

I read a old series I had read one book out of in eigth grade.. It’s called The Dark is Rising series, and it’s five books long.

Eat, Pray, Love

I tried to read Herland which is a 19th century utopian novel. I read about 3/4 of the way through it, and just stopped caring… oh well…

I’ve started reading/doing this journal writing book called Write for Life. I find if very informative, interesting, and self-learning.

I have a kindle on my phone now so also if I’m waiting and don’t have my journal I’m trying to tackle Pride & Prejudice. It’s slow at the start, but I’m hopeing it will draw me in. 3 years ago

Lisa HartHarry Potter Series Finished!

Well I just finished the harry potter series so it’s back to Charlie Wilson’s War, because I can’t not finish a book! It’s just not me! After I finish that I will start Relentless by Dean Koontz which my mom bought me for my birthday. And after that I’m going to start on my 1001 books to read before you die with my barnes and noble gift card I got also from my birthday. :o) 5 years ago

Lisa HartUpdate

Paused on Charlie Wilson’s War, because someone finally let me borow book 5, 6, & 7 of the Harry Potter Series. I am almost half way through book 5 – Order of the Pheonix. I am trying to read them all before all the movies are out, shouldn’t be a problem since six is just now coming out this fall/winter, and they are breaking the 7th book into two movies… 5 years ago

Lisa HartUpdate

Still haven’t gotten anywhere in Mr. Murder… probably because it lives at the office. I’m currently reading 800 years of women’s letters. It’s very interesting. Odd Hours was really good, already finished and returned to the owner. 800 years is taking me longer than normal, and I’m not sure if it is because it isn’t a story line and it is more a series of letters, so i really don’t get sucked into it like I do the other books I’ve read… shrugs I’ll probably read another Dean Koontz next… 6 years ago

Lisa HartBeen a while!

Well I finished ‘odd thomas’, ‘brother odd’, ‘forever odd’, and I just started on ‘Odd Hours’ by Dean Koontz. I’ve read up to ‘The Goblet of Fire’ on the Harry Potter series. I read a book called ‘David’ which was pretty good. I just finished a book called ‘Beautiful Bodies’ it was okay. I’m still working on Mr. Murder by Dean Koontz, but I just can’t get into that one. 6 years ago
