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.

snowstarmore fires

The wind gusted 70mph today and the fires started up again in so many places. The REALLY bad news is that we are not suppose to get rain until September. I don’t know how they can possibly predict this but that is what they are saying. 8 years ago

hihopesGreat rain in the Great Plains

I do believe that without the prayers and well wishes of our friends everywhere, the Great Plains could still be ablaze. So, as I am patting my own back, I pat yours.
Thank you for the rain! 8 years ago


Thank goodness we had rain in the panhandle this weekend-I haven’t heard if all the fires are out and if there is still a high danger(it is going to take more than one rain in the long run)but what a great start-Now we just have to make sure everyone is safe in the rain around Dallas!!! 8 years ago

Texas LinBe careful what we pray for

In our neighborhood we have had 7 inches of rain since midnight last night with more big storms on the way. Many streets and homes are flooded. Cars have been washed away in flash floods but luckily no one has been killed.

I dare say our drought is over. Hopefully some of this made it to the Panhandle to put out the wildfires. 8 years ago

Kiki's waiting at the gatePrayers work

Just yesterday we had our regular Lenten service here in the middle of the panhandle. We prayed for rain and asked for prayers for all the firemen and countless individuals helping in this massive effort…. We stepped out side soon after and it did rain a little… it gives us hope 8 years ago

Texas LinWishes and prayers couldn't hurt

The wildfires that are prevalent in Texas this Winter are horrific. Last week 12 people died. In all the time I have lived here this has been unheard of…tornadoes, flashfloods yes- but wildfires???

Huge congregations around the state are praying for rain. Please help by sending good wishes or prayers.

Thank you. 8 years ago


Almost a million acres have burned this week…over 1000 square miles.I just can’t believe it and I can’t believe I am so far away—not that I could do anything but it would just be nice to be with everyone. 8 years ago
