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.

Lately I’ve been thinking and I realize that if anything this goal is way too narrow as I realized that virginity is way too narrow as ultimately it is chastity before God and the one that one makes a commitment to. So in many ways marriage is not the end or the fix for this goal but only the beginning of the other side which I’m sure has its own unique set of challenges and struggles but in the end the same deeper goal in the end. 2 years ago

Celtic Christiangetting a lot harder as time goes on

As I’m finding out that is the drawback of a healthy and compatible relationship with a strong marriage potential, as the farther things progress the easier it becomes to not complete this goal as time goes on. 3 years ago

Celtic Christianback again

Not that I ever really “gave up” on this goal just that it did not make sense keeping it as an active goal when I was not in a relationship, but now that I am in a relationship with somebody this is once again an active goal. So far so good and this time around I have a lot more confidence already that things are much more likely to result in marriage. 3 years ago
