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.

Okay, so she’s not going to win, despite the fact that she definitely should. She did win free flowers for a year and my brother and I won $50 each, so we all had fun, won a little something, and showed Mom how loved she is. I’m considering this done; thanks for everyone who helped! I really appreciate it.

America's Favorite Mom

Okay, this might sound a little cheesy, but you seriously don’t know the ways I love my mom. She’s my best friend and constant ray of sunshine for me. She’s never let me down and she’s so inspirational – can you tell where this is going? I need your help! My mom has done so amazingly much for me that I’m trying to do something for her and I need my 43Things friends (that’s you!) to help me out.

Please please please go to this site and vote for my mom. You just log in, vote, and absolutely make my day! You can vote everyday, if you think of it. I really want to surprise my mom and I can’t do it by myself = ) Thank you!
