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.

hi. im 13. my mums mother has made it clear she never wants any questions about my grandfather asked. her friends said that she was previously with a dark coloured prince and so it was believed that was my mums dad until she was born when my mum was extremely pale. that’s all they know and family is the sae they know nothing or wont talk. I have a funny amazing step granddad but I am nothing like my family so I wonder if im like my real biological grandfather. I want to find him more than anything aspesaly know as my dads father died and im not coping very well. my grandma once lied about who he was by saying he was someone that she hadn’t actually met until my mum was 5 so that’s impossible. help. I just want a name and why I have lived so long without knowing who my granddad is. 4 months ago
