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 waited four years to meet this amazing and talented human being. I cried when I met him. He’s amazing and so sweet. So worth the wait <3 2 years ago

StrayDog123Close, but no cigar

Last week I went to a Bright Eyes concert in Council Bluff, Iowa (it’s just across the river from Omaha if you didn’t know). The VIP area was right next to stage so all the openers were hanging out there and also Conor!! My friends and I were the first people to see that he was over there so of course we had to rush over to the barricade. We proball got 20 feet away from him. We waved at him for maybe a good 10 minutes. He finally looked over and gave us a little wave!! Perhaps the coolest moment of my life. I consider that half way to meeting Conor in my book! :D 3 years ago
