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.

How to see more live theater

Good Luck December Lynn,

Is that your real name? It is so pretty, I used to have a great friend (back in the day). Named Tony Lynn, we were oh, lets see 13 back in 73. Am I giving my age away, yes. I was having a great time back then to. I would actually like to write a pilot for anything 70’s. I love the 70’s, people were just easier and not as irritable as what they are today. Today, people have more, but so much pressure is put on people to afford it all. I think the 70’s just had a sense all of it’s own, and even though I know we can’t go back ward, but 70’s was just more sensible, even though the craziness. The craziness was actually kindness, people cared more about people.
Anyway, I chose to write back to you, because I love to write. I am in no mood today to approach my local newspaper, but I have definitely thought about it. I have written on many boards even though I am getting older, I will be turning a sharp 48 this November. I can’t believe time flys when you are having fun, that is what they say. I wish you much success, and will continue to look into the business of freelance, thanks for your tips on “how I did it”.
