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.

Finished book within the hour. Disappointed about the fact that book and American movie have different endings. A few other complaints, but other than that… I love this book! 2 years ago

Live. Laugh. Love.Love, love, love!!!!

I have about 176 and some pages left to read, and I doubt I will finish before midnight. Which is fine; I will just have to do my consequence of organizing my shelves (and they do need to be organized!). I should have started reading my book earlier in the day, because then I could’ve finished already! Lesson to be learned. I’m going to read and finish before bedtime, surely. I’m in love with this book! It took awhile for me to be wholeheartedly into it because of its length, but once I got past that… yes. Let me reiterate that I looove Lisbeth Salander! Because I saw the American version of the film, I keep seeing scenes and the actors play in my mind. I love Rooney Mara as Lisbeth, and I have to put in that I hope Rooney wins an Oscar for Best Actress in a Leading Role. Seeerrriously! From what I remember, Rooney Mara was dead on in her portrayal. To me, she IS Lisbeth Salander. I love the character so much that I doubt I’ll hate the original Swedish variations of the character and movie. Okay, enough gushing – back to my book! 2 years ago

I found out that the Oscars isn’t till next Sunday! Haha, whoops! That’s good news, because after my show Once upon a Time is over, I want to go back to reading my book and hopefully finish it early tomorrow! 2 years ago

I’m done with my goal of reading half of my book today. I’m going to need to finish my book by tomorrow. 2 years ago

I’ve decided I’m only going to watch the Oscars tonight if I’ve read the half of ‘Dragon Tattoo’ today! So wish me luck! I’m getting up at 9 AM and I’m just going to be mostly reading. 2 years ago

I’ve had a headache basically all day. I didn’t go to ABE today and I haven’t read “Dragon Tattoo” as much as I’ve wanted to because I was sleeping for hours. I’m moving my challenge date again… to the 20th. Why does this book have to be so long? XD 2 years ago

The length of the book unfortunately intimidates me and there’s no way being at page 112 that I’ll finish tomorrow. I have school tomorrow, also, and don’t want to be tired. Moved my challenge date to the 15th of February. 2 years ago
