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.

Release a Bookcrossing book in all 50 states (read all 13 entries…)
Lots of Books to get ready!

I went to a Thrift Store today that has books for 35¢ each and bought a bunch of fairly well-known titles. Two are going with me to Colorado later this month. One of those will get to be released at the Rodeo in Cheyenne, Wyoming on July 27th!

Hey, “Firegirl” ~
Do BC’ers release in paperback, or mostly just hard cover? . . . Or mostly in paperback? I have tons of paperback novels, YA books, and even Children’s Lit that I could release but I worry about the wear & tear.

Releasing

In my experience, BCers release any and everything! I’ve found that paperbacks tend to move better—or I get more jounral entries on paperbacks anyway. I think people are more likely to grab a portable, tuck-in-your-purse paperback than a big heavy hardback.

(I was just passing through Cheyenne on the 20th and there was a rodeo!)
