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.

K Jarvo wishes people would search for goals before making new ones

Take one picture a day as a way to document my life (read all 37 entries…)

Olympic flame

I have restarted this goal and I was really excited because I had a fab picture. But I forgot to upload it on the day!!! I will never complete this goal :(

Anyway, I knew the Olympic torch was running through Liverpool when I was there, but I didn’t look at the route or plan to see it. I went with my friend to look at my degree show. As we were on the bus home, the bus got pulled over and we had to get off. There were crowds of people which indicated the flame was going past shortly. So we waited and I took a picture! :)

I was supposed to go to the celebrations in Liverpool where the Wombats were playing, but my sister didn’t pick the tickets up in time and they were reallocated :( ah well.
