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…)
Next month

I have a few birthdays coming up. This should be enough to get me up to 10 cards, so that I can mark it off my list.

I’m not making my own holiday cards (at least not this year) because I tend to find them very cheap and I still have so many I want to use up.

I love this idea!

Your cards look great, very professional. I made a few Christmas cards this year for family but all I did was stick a photo on the front! I have bits and pieces around the house that I hoard so I could perhaps do something like this myself next year. It’s so much nicer receiving a card that you know the person has hand made just for you!

Merry Christmas!
