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.

Woohoo ..

I’ve done it ~ again, so i’m posting quickly in case my cheers disappear again ~ I can’t help thinking that this time it was meant to be.

My ten thousand cheer went to buffalosnowangel for her thoughtful goal to celebrate seasonsoflove life ~ Kate touched so many of our hearts within this warm community, buffalosnowangel has given us a place where we can create uplifting memories and draw comfort from, for a beautiful soul and such a huge loss from within our 43things community ~ thank you buffalosnowangel.

Nine Hundred and Fourty Five to go ..

Woohoo from the thousands to the hundreds ..

My nine thousand and fifty five cheer went to Forester ..

F was such a support when I first came to 43things, i felt like he was on my side, always encouraging me that i was doing all the right things and to stay strong, it was exactly what i needed to stand firm in my convictions through some very frustrating days when my resolve was being tested to the limit so .. thank you F i don’t forget.

I cheered you on your goal about your Polish heritage because i know it brings you great personal sentiment and how much it will mean to you the day you land in Poland. You really do deserve to have your dreams brought forth and i’m cheering you all the way.

One Thousand Nine Hundred and Fourty Nine to go ..

I gave my eight thousand and fifty one cheer to LIGEMS for an entry about her love for GV although this one i think she is just stating how much she fancies the pants of him and goes by the descriptive title physique ..

When i first joined 43things i wanted somewhere to write about being in and coming out of an abusive relationship it was LIGEMS who most vehemently supported my entries with a mutual understanding. Being a newbie i felt totally out there writing about something so personal, LIGEMS openly encouraged and supported me, she gave me strength to stand by my convictions and this is my tribute to her.

LIGEMS you were my very first step in moving forwards and i thank you for this, sometimes that very first step is the hardest to make and you have been a blessing to me since i started my journey on 43things. May your awesomeness continue to grace the warmth of 43 things and i look forward to reading many more entries of the love you and GV have found in each other for a long time to come.

three thousand nine hundred and ninety five to go ..

It makes sense that my first entry on my first ever cheer goal should go in dedication to -JF .. -JF is the first person in my received cheers and i remember how welcoming she was when i first arrived on 43things, indeed it was -JF who taught me how to post my first video link ..

so my six thousand five hundreth cheer goes to -JF for her hula hooping which i have followed from her 3rd song to her 7th .. go girl, go girl, you are an inspiration to others, i totally sucked at the hula!
