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.

make my own cards (read all 10 entries…)
Cards 5, 6, and 7

This is turning out to be much easier than I thought. I guess the difficult goal is making good cards…i.e. cards that almost look like they are professional.

Well, I’m pretty satisfied with mine. I streamlined the process by making three similar cards at a time. There are only two cards in the picture, but the third one looks pretty much the same.

It’ll probably only be another month before I make it to card #10 and am done with this goal.

Those are beautiful, too.

What did you use for the swirls of color around the “Merry Christmas”? And where did you get the pictures?

Your card is so beautiful. I love having it hanging up and knowing that you made it!

I am such a slacker… I usually have mine out by the first of December, but they are still sitting here…waiting to be addressed. I had written out my Christmas Letter and then it got erased when I had to boot my laptop back to day one because of a virus or something. Anyway, I was going to do another letter but I just don’t have it in me this year.

I MUST get my Christmas Cards addressed and sent out TODAY!
