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.

Dolphine1313Another milestone

Well it’s too hot to put the guys on the dinosaur; so now I’ll have to wait until late in the evening to get this done. However, another milestone has been reached. My little guy has matriculated into kindergarden from Pre K. 2 years ago


Dolphine1313Picture not taken yet, but meet my boys...

They are the greatest. 2 years ago


Dolphine1313Time is running out on this goal.

My little man is getting bigger. Pretty soon I won’t be able to lift him up on the green monster. Gotta get crackin. 2 years ago


Dolphine1313This goal is taking way too long....

The problem is that by the time my daughter gets to my house on her day off, it is too hot. Can’t have my grandson with a burnt bottom for the sake of a photo opportunity. Nevertheless, I will accomplish this goal. One can only hope it is done before his 13th birthday. The cuteness factor will be gone. 2 years ago
