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.

2010 Goal #73. Make at least 52 donations to Goodwill/Salvation Army/Similar charity

5 cheers

I completed this by the calendar

and I didn’t actually make 52 donations. At last count I hovered at close to 20. (I count a bag as a donation.)

I am going to have a similar goal as this one for 2011, but worded differently so that I will keep up better. I kept saying “Oh, I will catch up, I will catch up when I am less busy” so ofcourse I never did!

Donated a couple more bags of stuff

I am woefully behind on this one. Perhaps I need to start helping friends organize their stuff and we can take a whole carload, get twelve or twenty bags together all at once! LOL.

PS. One BAG equals one donation, in my mind.

I donated two more bags

and recognize how my busy busy pacing in January and February slowed me down from goals such as this. It is ok, I can pick it back up.

It would be more accurate to say

one oversized bag per week. On Saturday I brought two enormous trash bags, could qualify for the first two weeks of January if I was going to be SUPER picky.

JulieJordanScott has gotten 5 cheers on this goal.
