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.

skittledragon has ordered my list according to importance.

identify 100 things that make me happy (besides money) (read all 10 entries…)

1. Spending any kind of time with my awesome fella. Even more so now we are living apart again.
2. My cat, whether by doing something daft or bestowing epic cuddles upon me without being called over.
3. Having coffee and a gossip with friends.
4. Having a long hot shower after a long hot run.
5. Getting a really good bargain.
6. My hair behaving.
7. Watching people open birthday/Xmas presents that I spent a lot of thought on.
8. The short-lived peaceful early morning when no-one’s around, preferably sat in the sun, with birds tweeting and a cup of tea.
9. Walking through cemeteries.
10. The sound of hammering rain outside when I’m tucked up safe and warm inside :)
