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.

jvtdcWe did it...

Last weekend we drove her to Arcata! What a beautiful place. She is going to love it there. She’s already applying for jobs, she’s settled into her new appartment. She loves her roommates. She remembered most everything! I’ve only needed to send up a few items. ... Now its just time to clean up the rest of her room and move everyone else around! 2 years ago

jvtdcOne week from today...

we will be driving her to Humboldt. My goal this weekend is to help her finish her room. I’m getting more teary eyed about this every day. Hopefully I can do this without being so emotional. 2 years ago

jvtdcWe are starting...

We are starting to box up things that she wants to take, but doesn’t need now… And things she wants us to save for her… Wow, she is really going to go. I am so happy for her, its time, but, still my heart gets a little sinking feeling when I think about it. Hmm. I’m not good at letting go. I know I have time, but, man, this is going to be hard. 2 years ago

jvtdcIt has been rough...

She stayed home for the first 2 years of college and went to a junior college to save money. But I think that she is much more nervous about leaving than she wants to admit because she is moody, grumpy and pretty negative lately. Its making a strained relationship with her father. I’m just praying for her right now. 2 years ago
