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.

~*Serenity*~Faith honey, I am so sorry I am this late for your birthday blessing.

Maybe you need it most now or maybe I am just a lazy ass who doesn’t get on her to much anymore. I’m sorry honey.

Happy Birthday baby, may you have days full of shine and evenings of cool rain, Blessings on where you plant yourself and may you grow ever more beautiful.

Blessings of love and laughter sweetie.

i had no idea all these messages were here. it was a lovely surprise to come across them today. i mean i should have known cos of flirt inviting me to the goal but last time i looked it was to say thank you to her for thinking of me.

Thank you all for the sweet, kind, lovely, funny, awesome comments. i had a lovely birthday this year which made a change – the X-X and i went away the weekend before, i got spoiled by him, my family, raph and my boss / colleagues on the day with gifts, cheesecake, a massage, phone calls, cds, clothes and a tripod. woo hoo! wanted one for ever.

thank you again, flirt – amazing how moving it was to read all these messages. each one special.

TGHappy Belated Birthday, Faith!

You probably aren’t surprised to see that I’m late with your birthday wishes ;)

I’m sure you don’t remember this, but your birthday is also my brother’s birthday- and I haven’t sent his present yet either :P

I hope you had a great day!

Faith is one of those 43ers that I stumble across now and then. She hasn’t been active the past couple of months, but is back posting thanks to Flirt’s birthday goal for her. I’m glad because she’s shown such growth the past couple of years, and I’m glad she’s given some updates on some of her goals. Here are my wishes for her for the coming year:

May she find the motivation to do at least 15 minutes of pilates every day. May her creative muses inspire her to write, whether it be poetry or prose. And may she continue to build upon her relationship, sustaining it and strengthening it. 6 years ago

thatgirlsabHappy birthday, Faith!

RuthGJuicy birthday to you, Faith!

I know your SA seasons are opposite of our northern ones, but I think you’ll still enjoy this August poem.

by Mary Oliver

When the blackberries hang
swollen in the woods, in the brambles
nobody owns, I spend

all day among the high
branches, reaching
my ripped arms, thinking

of nothing, cramming
the black honey of summer
into my mouth; all day my body

accepts what it is. In the dark
creeks that run by there is
this thick paw of my life darting among

the black bells, the leaves; there is
this happy tongue.

Have a delicious celebration of your day! 6 years ago


I hope your birthday is filled with beauty and love, and may you receive much happiness in the coming year.
