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.

...as far as freeing my own books, but soon, soon. I’m trying to decide if I want to add anything extra to the covers (do you?). Impressive that you’ve released over 1000!

was fed up with me hand writing post-it notes for the front of all my BC wild releases. Two xmas’s ago he asked his cousin to print a whole box of post-it sized notes for me. I have to use repositionable craft glue on them, but it sure saves a lot of time. And a lot of griping from my husband. :-) Now he only complains about my over-flowing BC bookshelf (the real one). I’ve got the reputation of wanting any and all books so now friends tend to bring by boxes of them. Lately, I’ve done a lot of wild releases and have had some good journal entries – I think about 10 of them since April.
If you want to send me your address through BC, I’d be glad to share some of my cover notes with you. Just a little motivation to help you wild release. :-)
