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.

Danie Honeybuni effed up

yeah, if any of you read any of my other entries… i effed up again. i am awful with money and the fact that i have some sort of stupif brain defect that stops me from thinking about things in a scrutinizing way doesn’t help. after my last spending spree (blowing my credit card limit os £2000) my mother-in-law paid it off and i have been paying her some money ever since. i decided to be an idiot again and spend it all… on nothing. makeup, taxis, meals out, etc. all of the credit card is gone again and this time i have noone to pick my pieces up for me. it is my job to sort it out and be a big adult about this.

i hate manic depression. 7 years ago


It’s been an easy goal to accomplish since everything I make I put towards paying off my credit card debt and I certainly am not using my credit cards for anything. Also I have gotten a few unnecessary items but have somehow managed to find use for them for things which will in turn make me money. Never the intention in the begining but it is what the final outcome will wind up being. :) 8 years ago

SarahDoing well

There are LOTS of things I’d really love to buy. But, unfortunately I don’t have the available cash so… they have to wait. I’ve been very good this month about not spending money I don’t have and whilst I haven’t been saving any (no income means no savings) I’ve certainly not spent a lot either :) 9 years ago

Sarahcredit cards

I’m going to see the boything next week, but! i’m leaving all my credit cards at home and only taking my debit card, so hopefully that’ll encourage me to spend less! 9 years ago
