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.

Paint the town "Tiger-Striped" and throw lots of birthday confetti on July 27th!

TGAt least this time

Chupie brought a present! (It’s so rude to show up and gobble up all the food and not even bring a gift ;) ).

Overall, although I had to work my long day on her birthday, I think Tiger had a good time. And look, I waited so long to post on the goal that it’s only 4 months until her next birthday! 4 years ago

TGOf course,

Chupie had to be part of the party (she’s such a little attention whore! ;) ). 4 years ago

TGThis present

takes a bit of an explanation- it’s a Chicago Bears soup tureen.

Tiger had told me several times that she really would like to have a soup tureen, and she’s a big Bears fan. So when I saw this I couldn’t pass it up, even though I doubt that it’s exactly what she had in mind.

It should be perfect for a football party, though!4 years ago

TGOne small

but appropriate present :D

Too bad we found out later that the decal wasn’t dishwasher safe. I guess we’ll have to pick up another one the next time we’re in Vegas.4 years ago

TGWhen we got back home,

she had a few presents to open! 4 years ago

TGOn her actual birthday

we of course had to go out to dinner at her favorite restaurant: Pei Wei. 4 years ago

TGIt's now been

nearly 8 months, so I guess it’s time to finish posting on this goal!

As I mentioned, Tiger’s birthday was on a Monday & I had to work, so I came back from vacation a day early so we could at least spend the day before her birthday together. I don’t have pics of all of our activities ;) but one thing that we did was go bowling. 4 years ago

Geo58Hope you "Painted the towen red" and thew lots of birthday confetti on your birthday Tiger

just want you and everyone to know that I am saying, NO to all future birthday joining goals requests. I really appreciate the offer of joining an individual or team goal of someone else’s team. They are causing me too much emotional pain, and anxiety in my life. Thank you 5 years ago

Todd SchoonoverHappy Birthday

Earlier this year I was in Denver for two days, and had hoped that things would work out so that I could finally meet Tiger while there. Unfortunately the timing didn’t work out so I didn’t get to meet her or TG. That’s a shame as I know Tiger and I would’ve had a great time together whether we were talking medical stories or talking smut. I’ll be visiting Denver again though, so maybe next time we’ll have a chance to get together. Until then, here are my wishes for her for the coming year:

May she wake up each morning with a renewed sense of self and the confidence in knowing that she can put up with whatever stupidity she encounters that day. May she always have something to laugh about, even if it’s just one of those silly tests. And may she do more than just think about that next Rocky Mountain meet. 5 years ago

SurlyHappy Happy Birthday!!!

Tiger, have a KICK ASS year! All the best to you!

TGSince I have to work

today, on Tiger’s birthday, I came home from vacation a day early so we at least had a day to spend together. She wanted to wait until the 27th to actually celebrate her birthday, so she’ll have to wait until this evening to open her presents.

But we had a fun day together yesterday ;) 5 years ago
