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.

helping out when you can

I was talking to my Dad on the phone tonight. He was telling me about doctors appointments and symptoms and such as he will likely very soon be diagnosed with oral cancer. Shortly after that phone call he calls me back and tells me a story about how someone he knows was about to have his family home taken by the bank because his wife has recently had health issues and can no longer work. My Dad immediately went to the bank and gave him what to him (a low income senior) was a large amount of money to help his friend. It gave this man some more time to try to figure things out. It makes me very happy that even when he has so much negativity going on he can see how he can help someone else! That’s my Dad :)
