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.

kimberlyd08Sometimes tragedies can be blessings

I don’t remember the exact date, but I believe it was some time in April 2014, my house was completely destroyed by someone who has abused me and my family for years. This, plus many other things, has made me want to write a book that will hopefully inspire and help others who are in abusive situations. 4 weeks ago

AlsanderaI do have interesting stories...

At lunch yesterday, people wanted me to tell the new girl about the bomb scare in our building. It’s a fun story.

Hm… That’s another story with cops. I definitely need stories that don’t involve law enforcement… 5 months ago

AlsanderaNo more stalkers

You know, I have some interesting experiences, but I think I need to clarify this goal.

While stalkers and police stations and police reports and warrants are interesting, they’re not fun.

Henceforth, this goals shall be known as “Have positive life experiences that make interesting stories.” 6 months ago
