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.

CageLovesThank you

I don’t know where I can post this but I just have to share it. I didn’t do anything instead many are helping my family.

We have asked so many people that we know of, family, friends, hospital doctors, nurses, and staff and other people that we just met, caring strangers, and friends of friends, to pray for my sister-in-law who has gone through a brain surgery and fighting to survive, and for my brother, her husband and their young boy.
I am so overwhelmed how many people have loving hearts and caring souls, how they reached out and offered to pray for her. I am so touched how many people offered their help by cooking for us and taking turns in the hospital to watch over her.
The only thing I can do in return is pray for them as well. Prayers are being heard. God is listening. I know this. I’ve seen it through her. Kindness and compassion still live in everyone’s heart. Faith is still alive. 19 months ago

CageLoves2 Berry Sundaes for 6 cents

I was waiting in line at Sam’s Club cafe to get 2 Berry Sundaes for at least 10 mins. The teen in front of me wanted a smoothie but she needed 6 more cents. Only 6cents. She was looking for her dad to get it. So I stopped her before she was about to run and gave her what she needed.
I know my entry doesn’t really count since she knew about it. It still felt really nice that I was able to be there to give her 6cents. So there I was ordering my Sundaes, and the guy told me that the Sundae machine was out of order.

10 minutes wait. no Sundaes. 6 cents. worth it. 2 years ago
