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.

CageLovesThe End - #13

I like the symbolism of good and evil in reference to the python and the apple in an ironic way. I also like how Lemony S. was faithful in including Beatrice till the end.

My fave “anybody-can-relate-to-this” parts:

“It is one of the strange truths of life that practically nobody likes to be stared at and that practically nobody can stop themselves from staring.”

“If you live among people… then every moment of your life is an incident of peer pressure, and you cannot avoid it… And if you try to avoid every instance of peer pressure you will end up without any peers whatsoever…” 3 years ago

CageLovesThe Penultimate Peril - #12

I stop reading in the middle of chapter three. I guess I got tired of getting to resolution part of the story. After a week of just looking at the book on my desk staring back at me, I went back to reading it. As soon as I got to chapter four, I couldn’t put it down. I could kick myself for not continuing on when I was on chapter three. Anyway, to me this book is about moral corruption. Can good, decent people be corrupted morally?

My favorite “anybody-can-relate-to-this” part:
When someone has disappointed you, it is often difficult to decide whether to continue their acquaintance, even if the disappointers have done noble things in the meantime. (Chapter Eight)

(I love the mirror-written chapters since I do mirror-writing, too.) 3 years ago

CageLovesThe Grim Grotto - #11

The water cycle was explained 4 times. OMG! If I ever forget these phenomenon of the water cycle, I’ll hit myself in the head with this book. 3 years ago

CageLovesThe Slippery Slope - #10

My favorite “anybody-can-relate-to-this” part:

Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant, filled with odd waiters who bring you things you never asked for and don’t always like. (Chapter One) 3 years ago

CageLovesThe Carnivorous Carnival - #9

My favorite “anybody-can-relate-to-this” part:

Grief, a type of sadness that most often occurs when you have lost someone you love, is a sneaky thing, because it can disappear for a long time, and then pop back up when you least expect it. (Chapter Five)

The curious thing about being told to sleep on it is that you usually can’t. (Chapter Nine) 3 years ago

Mr. Poe… Nevermore Tree… crows… => The Raven

I think it’s clever since The Raven talks about a man mourning over the loss of his lover in which Lemony Snicket is always talking about his loss…Beatrice. 3 years ago
