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.

Izanami has written 1 entry about this goal


Would anyone be interested in reading…....

The pathetic tale of 4 children raised in an alcoholic home with a raging alcoholic mother and a dying invalid father?

The misadventures of a Catholic high school girl working at the old dime-store lunch counter. Drinking protege of her flaming red-haired middle-aged boss.

The mid-life crisis of an administrative clerk who comes alive after dark and begins investigating the underbelly of the city to satisfy long dormant desires tempted by the Internet.

The monthly letters written by a wise, old, philosopher beginning when he was in his 60’s sent to his adopted daughter over the course of 30 years while she finds herself struggling in the world thousands of miles away from him.

I could go on . . . . stories of personal tragedies and dramatic rebounding triumph, spread out across the background of the United States. Limp, colorless? Factual and fascinating? Is it there?

Where to start? What is the focus? Where does it lead? Who is the audience?

Izanami has gotten 2 cheers on this goal.
