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.

I wish I could cheer myself because this freakin’ goal RULES! 7 years ago


2008 or bust! 7 years ago


So HP fan trips came out with a 2007 package, and despite the fact that 2009 will probably be the best one, I REALLY want to go to this one. Probably because in 2009, I’ll be the better part of 25/26, and I think things like these will be well spent on the earlier ages. I’m afraid the older I get, the more dull I become, so I probably won’t enjoy it as much as I do now. Plus, I’d like to have a kid in 2010, so it’d be borderline weird to be preggers and on a Harry Potter trip. I glumly went through my credit card bill for the past month to see how much I spent, and knowing that I had blown my budget, it appears to me that with the credit that I’ve thrown away on stupid purchases, I could have more than 60% of the cost for this trip. Now that I have so many people barking at me about the cost, I feel reluctant to go, but looking back, I see all the money I’ve practically wasted. I can be too generous with money and I can’t say no. If I can’t go this year, it’ll be a hard pill to swallow, but I can guarantee I’ll learn something from this. 8 years ago


I told my boyfriend that if he and I get married, this trip is what I want as a wedding gift from him. Although in 2007, Order of the Phoenix is due out (July 13th), and book 7 is due out, date unknown. A lot of speculation is flying around the message boards saying it will be 07/07/07, but I have a feeling it will come out on HP’s birthday: July 31st. 8 years ago

ilikethatI want to go!

In October, the HPfan trips for 2007 will be up, which can either be good or bad BECAUSE book 7 is coming out AND also the Order of the Phoenix will be showing. Hmmm, I’ll have to see how this plays out. I just may go this year after all. !!! 8 years ago
