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.

I'm getting at better at this

However I still forget to do it when I have images which fit a response. Also when I’m using 43things and I’m not on my computer, I don’t always have access to my pictures.

Although this picture is totally unrelated to this topic, I’ll post it anyway. It’s an image of two huge flames which merged into one huge fireball at Burning Man 2006. The performance/piece was called 2Bleve and resulted in a fireball that was probably about 300 feet in diameter. If you look closely the circles near the bottom of the flame are about 4 feet tall, so the flame on the left is probably 110 feet tall and the one on the right is about 50 feet tall.

I just found out one can add pictures with the edit entry feature

I’ve got pictures that go with some of my entries, so now I’ll start adding them. I’ll also try to add a picture when I add an entry if I have one that fits.
