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.

VousavecYou know...

I don’t need this to feel pretty. I kind of look at this as a waste of my time because it’s not like me to want to do things like that… I gues I thought it would be fun, but I would feel like a fish out of water.

I just don’t see myself doing that much for something that doesn’t really mean too much to me, so that is why I am quitting this goal. It just doesn’t mean anything to me anymore. 8 years ago

VousavecAlways wanted to see...

if the girls that compete on those things are really so mean and superficial (like you see on t.v.) That and I wanted to see if I could have what it takes…it’s probably a bunch of politics, but there’s always one here around fall time. Better start working out, eh? I just wanted to see if they would pick me… I’m not going to go anywhere with them. lol.
