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.

Daily: Reflect on 5 things for which I'm grateful. (read all 40 entries…)
grateful 08.19.08

1. field trip meeting at work (stoked!!) ...walked to caribou coffee for our weekly meeting. I think some people were put off by it ..but i loved it!!!!

2. trivia tonight! we did much better this time than the previous outing. previous outing was pitiful. but also kinda cool that some guy i hadn’t talked to in years, recognized me ..think he would have invited me their team but was waiting for someone.

3. gave WL his bday gift tonight. he was really pleased with it. said it was the best gift he has received in the past 3 years. if there is one thing i can say about me “I give good gifts.” it also makes me wonder about our relationship ..not sure where it is going …

4. think my vball club will host a pretty major tournament next spring. next week get to meet with some pretty impressive people downtown. :)

5. RF, RJ, AA, & WL …friends who have each brought something to my life.
