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.

AuntieThorneSo far, so good...

I’m 45 and still free. Had a few years when I had to work at it, raisning my daughter as a single mom; running my own business. The world, money and responsibility will always try to get in the way. The trick, I’ve found, is in creativity. I’ve always managed to find ways to include spontainaity, wonder, and freedom in my responsibilities as a mom (raised a daughter as a free spirit, too!); in my endeavors in business and art and life.
Still working at it!! LOL7 years ago


i love running through fields of wildflowers wearing white cotton dresses. and spontaneous naked swimming at midnight. and painting myself instead of the canvas in the bathtub. and lying in the grass with my love til the sunsets. and running outside to dance in the rain when everyone else runs in. and playing in city fountains on hot summer days. and taking bubble baths with friends. and spontaneous excited kisses. and spending an entire day in bed while not being alone. and finding beauty in the most unexpected places, in that boy.

i hate order and plans. structure is no good either.

i always want to remain a free spirit. always. 8 years ago
