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.

My golden birthday is coming up and I want to have a huge party. I enjoy bowling and I think it would be great to have everyone go to an alley. Would anyone happen to know where I could host a bowling party in Sydney? http://www.newmarkethotel.com.au/bowl/kids-parties/ 3 months ago

ShadowsCursedBowling Fever

Here’s the filthy truth: I just need to bowl to get a little more social.

I’m a little shy and need to get a push to make quality friends. This might be a fun way to get out and meet quality friends.

Lost WayfarerI went with my Writing group, the NanKnights!

April 20, 2012

I met with my writing group, the NanKnights. First we went flying kites and afterwards we went bowling!

The bowling alley was almost deserted (only one other group of people) and we had fun drinking root beer, bowling, eating pizza and playing Trivia games and thought processing games between rolls.

We danced abit and sang along with the music that we choose off the jukebox.

I did lousy the first two games, but the last and third game, I found my groove! I almost broke a hundred that last name. I got 98!

I took several pictures of Bickle, as everyone in my group wanted to meet him. We had fun naming the ball. There was this ball with 5 holes, we named Doris, as it had the name Doris on it. The pink 7 pound ball, was named Pinky. There was a wild spiral swirled balled we named Galaxy. and an bright orange and sickly yellow ball that J. named Herpes. It was funny because J. only bowled with it once and that was it.

We talked about maybe doing this weekly if we could afford it. I have so much fun with my writing group!

Happily, although the first day of spring break was full of unexpected flurries, we made it through the snow to meet up with a multitude of friends at the local bowling ally.

Great fun – Isak was doing happy dances on the floor, Iris was chipper the whole time (and fell asleep on the way home), and I enjoyed hanging with the other grown-ups, getting to know them better. We indulged in pizza & pop, and even made extra time for air hockey, virtual car races, and dinosaur hunting. I’m tuckered out, but it was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon – we should really go more often, we still haven’t dragged M. out for some pin-toppling. Next time? 2 years ago
