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.

Save a 'gig fund' so I never miss a band I love

samIamOmaha - one of the best midwest locales for music!

This goal is great for me because one thing that really excited me about moving to Omaha, NE is that it is a central location for music and bands. When I lived in Hastings, I would have to drive for three hours to see a band I love perform in Omaha, but now that I live in Omaha, I don’t want to miss a single show. I also want to attend a lot of local shows to find new bands to listen to and meet new people :)

I saw my first concert last week at The Waiting Room – a smaller venue but a great place for music. I have also heard about a lot of great bands playing at The Slowdown. The windows of The Waiting Room were covered with posters about upcoming shows, so I really have no excuse to not see more concerts – other than money, of course (which is what this goal is for!). 2 years ago
