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.

RuthGHow about a prickly pear martini?


Sometimes flirting involves a bit of prickliness, you know!

Flirt, hope you are having a warm, hilarious, filled-with-affection birthday. Thanks for all the birthday celebrations you initiate here! They make 43T such a delightful place to be. 5 years ago

Ms. Sunflower of the FLIRTY PlainsNever let it be said again (especially by me)

that Kanard doesn’t know how to share chocolate. I just received a lovely package from Kanard and family with a box of chocolates in it. MERCI, MERCI, Kanard!5 years ago

NielHappy Birthday, Flirt!

I sent a cowboy to take Flirt some purple chocolate on her birthday. Sorry to say, a coyote ate the chocolate. Or that’s the cowboy’s story. Or that’s what Flirt said the cowboy said.

I hope somebody else made up the loss! 5 years ago

Happy Birthday, Flirt! Wishing You a Year Of Flirtatious Fun!,, years ago

Ms. Sunflower of the FLIRTY PlainsA HUGE thank you to everyone!

I’ve just got home from an afternoon of shopping and dinner with two old longtime friends. The kind of friends, as one of them put it tonight, that you have to keep because they know too many things about you. I’ve had lots of smiles and laughter seeing all chocolate, flirtinis and purple – and combinations there of – that you’ve left for me along with your wonderful wished. It might take me a while to get them all cheered and commented on, but I love and treasure every one of them. Thank you for helping to make this a wonderful birthday.

Flirt is so special that two people made sure I made it to this party. Thank you Todd and Ellie. But believe it or not, I actually made sure to pencil it in my calendar. I would’nt miss the party for the funnest, kindest Flirt ever.

Flirtie: I am not on here much, well not here at all. Work is consuming me. But what better reason to come up for air than to celebrate your birthday. I wish you continued joy and may your zest for life keep growing. xoxo!
