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.

1st neph has a bday comin up. sent him a sweet bball net for his room – not the flimsy nerf kind but a serious one with a nerf ball.
he’s mad into sports these days, particularly bball i understand, so was enthused to encourage it.
ultimately though it is the one-on-one’s and games with his dad i look forward to the most.
so much love for those kids. 14 months ago

i love it 19 months ago


honestly i don’t know how to do this from the other side of the world. my way of showing them love would be cuddles and reading them stories and playing. and i can only do those things once a year tops. i don’t know if i’ll ever achieve this goal. 20 months ago

Peggy HillAunt Award

I think that I may deserve an aunt award by the end of this summer.

At the beginning of the summer, my husband and I spend a week at Disney with one set of nieces and nephew. Then we spent a weekend at the beach with another set. Today the third set of nieces are spending the day at our house playing video games. And finally, next week my oldest niece will be staying with us for a week.

I miss out on so much of their lives during the year that I make a strong effort to see them in the summer. But this summer has included an impressive amount of time with them, especially when you consider that the ones located closest to us are 120 miles away. 2 years ago
