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.

My X is now going to let her new boyfriend possibly fiance start to be called “dad”. I’m very unhappy about this concerding that she said that he would always know who is father is. I won’t see him for the next 5 years. If i do it’s only gonna be off and on once every now and then. It hurts alot to know that your little boy is gonna grow up in the shadow of someone else and not you. I love that little squid soooo much. I miss him. But i’m in the Army so i can do good things for him. LOVE YOU BRODY!! 6 years ago


It’s the gift that keeps on giving. I don’t ever want to complete this goal. I want him to be my little man forever. 6 years ago
