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.

a friend needed surgery

Someone I know, really just an acquaintance, needed outpatient surgery yesterday, and had no-one to drive him there or pick him up. He really has no friends, I think. When he called my mom to ask for help, she suggested me, since she was going to be busy. So I woke up early yesterday to get him, spent 6 hours at the hospital, and then took him home.

It feels awkward to write about doing a nice thing for someone else, and I want no cheers for it. So there.


stardustannie Time to get back to my list!!!!!

Am out of cheers

Well done you, what a thoughtful thing to do.

Not a cheer to be found here...

... but I AM proud of you :-)

If you insist.

I’m only not cheering because you asked us not to. But I would have done! :-)
