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.

41. Mistletoe (10/43)

Mistletoe was very hard to come by in this town. Every place I went to was sold out or they didn’t carry it. I managed to find this as soon as I’d given up on it!



29. Cards (9/43)

I got so many cards this year that I actually ran out of space around the arch I was hanging them up on. Thanks to all the 43Ters who sent me one!! Getting so much mail made this holiday season extra bright! :)



2. Tradition (8/43)

My family goes to Denny’s every Christmas Eve. This tradition started after not being able to find a family friend’s new house one Christmas Eve and remembering that Denny’s was open in the movie the Santa Clause. lol



21. Stockings (7/43)

Everyone in my family has a stocking. Even our dog. :)



11. Wrapping it up (6/43)

I’ve been staying on top of wrapping presents as soon as they come in the mail. Shopping online has made my Christmas shopping so much easier this year! No bumming rides from my mom to get to the mall.



27. Nutcracker (5/43)

In the form of the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz! If they hadn’t been so expensive I would have been tempted to get him and the Scarecrow!



12. Dropping the ball (4/43)

Calendars.com really dropped the ball with discreet packaging this holiday season… And of course FI is the one who got the mail when it came in.

Uh no dear, it’s not a calendar… It’s a dog toy…



5. Presents (3/43)

Presents! With the gifts from my secret santa front and center. So excited! :)



9. Bell (2/43)

So technically this Bell has an e on the end, but after noticing it while sitting at the desk I couldn’t pass up the Disney connection. ;) I bought this pen two years ago at Disney On Ice.



10. Christmas tree (1/43)

FI and I decided to go with an artificial tree this year to save on costs over the next two years. We went out on Black Friday for it and it’s our own Charlie Brown Christmas tree. Putting the decorations on it makes it look A LOT fuller than it actually is. lol

There are even presents ready to go already! :)
