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.

Almost makes me feel as light as actually losing weight around my middle! Do I love it? Am I paying for the gas to haul it 2,200 miles? Am I paying for the time to pack it? If I don’t love it, then the answer is no, no, no! 2 years ago

kmom24684 bags of stuff I haven't seen in years

in the trash or in the burn barrel. 4 boxes of stuff donated. Several things with a “free” sign taken away by interested parties. Only 6 weeks till moving time! 2 years ago


Not with all the junk at my house! I have at least 2 file cabinets full of magazines that I surely don’t need. Some are over 6 years old and followed me from my last house. They certainly don’t need to go to my next house!

The thought of being able to move has reignited the fire under my rear end to get this done. 3 years ago
