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.

turn my office into a usable work space, instead of a storage unit (read all 12 entries…)
Consolidating the sea container... a filthy, annoying job. But I got quite a bit done today, and now you can even walk from the front to the back without having to step over anything! Mostly, I got rid of stuff (how many stupid woven baskets do we need?), and then I put like things together. I was surprised by how many “miscellaneous” boxes and bags were in there, when most of it actually has a home to go into. However, to be fair, I completely understand wanting to just throw a bag in there and shut the door.

I pulled costumes that may potentially be used for our upcoming concert, since I’ll be meeting with our choreographer tomorrow to discuss the show. Still haven’t put away everything from the Christmas show (AGH) but am slowly getting there. I still need to find some costume sets that I can SpaceBag as well – presumably stuff we won’t be using anytime soon.

Also note to self: put the winter show stuff in the FRONT of the sea container, since we use the same costume pieces EVERY YEAR. kthxbai.


SimplicityInTheLBC has gotten 4 cheers on this entry.
