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.

Still weaning onto lamictal so can’t get it yet – going back and forth – maybe info in a wallet would suffice. 8 years ago

LaughAtlantisI feel a teensy bit safer.

Plus, I’ve gotten two compliments on my nice new bracelet, and then compliments on how smart it is to have it. Yay for feeliing secure! 8 years ago


I’m so proud. In a few weeks I will be the proud owner of a Medic Alert ID card and a lovely silver bracelet that tells people that I am seizing because I am an epileptic, not a drug addict, and that if they try to give me a CAT scan, I will probably die. Yay for advanced warning! 8 years ago


I just need to figure out exactly what drugs I am going to be on consistently before I get one. It’s sort of pointless to have a bracelet that just reads “Epileptic.” Duh. If a stranger sees me have a seizure, I think they could probably assume that. 8 years ago

anitadittmarDo I really need one?

I’ve been going back and forth on this one and I’m torn. At this point I’m not willing to shell out all that money for a bracelet that I don’t really want. So no. Maybe when I get a better job. 9 years ago

anitadittmarWho knew?

I didn’t realize it was such a process…I thought you just had to go to the drug store and get one. But you have to get a form, and fill it out, chose a design, send it away…it’s bad enough that I NEED one, it shouldn’t be this much work. 9 years ago
