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.

in conjunction with an artists book

I have no familiar background with designing a layout, entry format.. I’ll read graphic design books to help with that. I’m thinking a fun break-though project will be to focus on my ‘art book project’ and post my findings (within a week and a half period) on a familiar site, but separate to this. From what I understood in my design course this semester, it’s not required to have an actual physical book, a book could be practically anything so long as it denotes the theme of time.. even a stack of stones! The doors are wide open, I’m taking more of a conventional route, but posting online seems natural for this day and age

It will be about anything everything(to an extent)!

Now I just need to find a domain? I think, there must be so many to choose from, and I need a catchy name, that’s a must. 43things is somewhat like a blog, but I want more short journal-like entries that might appeal to other’s, offering from a range of a kind of eclectic mix of random insight/ daily observations and fun facts to advice on products, fashion/styling-on a dime along with trend forecasting and a watchout for design/color inspirations and all that’s lovely. Okay so it’s still shimmery on the surface of superficial and no so profound but a little diversion at best. I also want to include yummy food encounters, like this puglaese flat bread, hello college students good bye to ramen hello flat bread~ and you know what makes good food even better~ saying” mm yum :||” a couple time before sinking your teeth in the next bite. Goals first!
