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.

becoming the Jane I'm supposed to be When the world says 'give up', hope whispers 'try it one more time'

take a photo daily and upload at least weekly (read all 100 entries…)
6th February 2012 - thank goodness I always carry my camera

I passed this snow gargoyle on my way home from work. It was in the front garden of an inconspicuous terrace house. It was modelled on an ornament which was on display on the window sill. I was amazingly impressed as was the man who stopped to take a photo seconds after I did.

You are so -

very welcome!
Good for you that you took the picture, & didn’t worry about what anyone thought!

Since working on my confidence I should go out & take some pictures & see if I feel a difference when I’m taking pictures!
I too have felt uncomfortable at times when wanting to take a picture of something & people are watching/looking at me!

it started

When i took my teenage son on holiday. As a shared and free interest we completed a photo scavenger hunt. Because I was away from home and knew no one i felt free to take any picture i wanted. It made me realise how many Fab photo opportunities i was missing because I was worrying what people thought.
Good Luck Im looking forward to seeing your pictures :-)

Hmm -

I didn’t get an e-mail for this one this time & I think I should have…
Maybe 43Things e-mail notifications are acting funny again too!

I did recently take pictures in a restaurant & didn’t care too much it helped that the restaurant wasn’t crowded though!
