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.

ImUrHoneyBeeFound it

I have had this goal on my list for a while and i keep thinking to myself i should get a move on and find somewhere i like to go and get away from it all. Then today it occurred to me the one place i always go is my room. I know it sounds corny, but i love my bedroom. It’s usually always tidy and its full of things i have collected on my travels and photos of my family and friends. I love having this stuff all around me. When i am in my room everyone always leaves me alone and i can write or read or chat on the phone or simply day dream. Basically do what i want to do. One thing i know is that its always going to be my room and i do not have to worry about sharing it or think about the hassle of having to get there. Everyone needs their own personal place and i have mine. 6 years ago

Any place can be a special place. You can meet people anywhere who will ask a traveller to join them at the dinner table. 8 years ago

HeshWouldn't that be lovely?

Aaah I can see it now. I’d love to have some kind of little house or den in the countryside, in a tree or somewhere hidden. I’d be able to see all that would be going on in my own little special place. I could invite only my closest and dearest friends, or even come alone and sit and think, or not even think, just…exist… 9 years ago
