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.

three weeks later..

Well, I’m back, I didn’t give up this time, I left after I failed miserably three days into September. After that I fell back for several days and then went 6 days without until I messed up last Sunday morning, so here I am, I’ve changed many things in my life to be able to do this, most notably, getting right with God again. He has given me the strength that I’ve needed to do this for so long and I am truly happy that I am so close to the first tier of my goal. I also notice there are a lot of new people on the board. Keep at it everyone and God bless!

I started several years ago. Someone mentioned to me what NOT to do, .. so I started doing it. now I’m obsessed with it.
I’m glad you’re on the right path; keep it up!
