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.

RoofJumperIt's been awhile

Now I have two, and they are amazing!

In the near term, to be a good mom I need to do a number of other things, which I will add to my 43 things list.

They include, working on math with both of them, taking them to more activities, and hosting more playdates.

I know it is worth it to put the time and effort into them. They are such great kids! 11 months ago

philosopheA four-year-old explains...

The justice system:

“A court is a judge and somebody who says, ‘He took my things!’

And somebody else says, ‘Nooo, he took MY things!’

And the judge says, ‘Ooohkay, stop arguing and I’m gonna show you how to play golf.’”

Wow… I laughed so hard when my son said that…I have no idea where he got that from, but if that’s really how things worked, I bet we’d have fewer problems in our country. “You are guilty. Choose between community service and a golf lesson with His Honor.” 2 years ago
