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.

rileydoddsThe beauty of GoodReads

I’ve been logging every single book I read so far this year! GoodReads is great for seeing other user reviews and keeping track of books you have already read/want to read. Making this goal way easier! :) 18 months ago

Kayla ChristineThe Rescue - Nicholas Sparks

A FANTASTIC read. Made me cry more than once, and it more than just a typical love story. About second chances and dealing with our pasts, this book can and will touch many people for altogether different reasons. Another MUST read. 2 years ago

Kayla ChristineRoom - Emma Donoghue

This book was incredibly disturbing and eye opening. It’s about a woman being held prisoner by a sadistic monster who impregnates her. She then has to give birth in a tiny room, raising this child who knows nothing but the limits of the room and who grows up believing there is nothing but Room. A fictional tale that is too realistic for comfort. A must read. 2 years ago

So I’ve just been totally failing at this lately,
BUT. I’m starting to get back into it AGAIN!
Since my last post I’ve only read like 3 books _
But I’m really gonna start doing this again!
Currently reading The Help!
It’s fantastic so far, and I’m sure it will only get better. :) 2 years ago

Kayla ChristineProgress is Being Made..

VERY slowly.
I’m currently reading and almost finished “Heaven is For Real” by Todd Burpo.
It is an EXCELLENT book; very thought-provoking.
Highly recommended. 2 years ago

Kayla ChristineStarting to enjoy this again ...<3

So I just finished the book “The Language of the Sea” by James Macmanus.
It was either absolutely genius, or terrible. I haven’t quite deicded yet.
It’s about a man obsessed with marine biology, mainly seals.
He thinks that marine biology institutes focus too much on expanding our knowledge of what we do know, instead of exploring the unknown. He makes these opinions very clear, and to his boss, expresses these opinions too harshly.
His marriage is failing,
he gets fired from the job he loves.
and then he disappears.
On a last boating trip out to a very highly seal populated area with his students, he gets swept overboard by an unseen intense storm.
Assumed dead, people stop searching for him. But his wife still has hope that somehow he has survived.
The ending completely shocked me. But like I said, I have yet to determine whether or not the ending was genius or stupidity.
A must read, either way. 2 years ago

Kayla ChristineFirst book completed!

So for English class we had to read a book called “The Lottery” by Beth Goobie. Most people who have read it for that class (and most people in my class) hated it, but I personally loved it. I guess I’m just an oddball, but I found it SO relative to the high school system..
It just really hit home with me. It comes HIGHLY recommended by me. (: 3 years ago

Kayla ChristineWell,

I guess the first step to this is actually reading a book…
