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.

HeerenLo..xMoving into a new place

this means a new start- I would never go back to living with family as this to me means regression. Building up a better social life and also learning to be without a man. 8 months ago

HeerenLo..xMoved out

into my own house share, although this is the start I still need to find out what is around me, start making the most of my time, making time to do chores, do DIY myself and decorating myself and not rely so heavily on others to provide me with stuff for my room. 9 months ago

cmdiamondLong Time Coming

I have been with my partner for over ten years. When we first started dating, I thought it would be me and him against the world. In the spirit of compromise, I put my hobbies on the back-burner; until I was no longer doing things that once gave me joy.
It took me a long time to figure out, it is a lot to ask one person to make you happy all the time. There is nothing wrong with having multiple outlets for your interests. 2 years ago
