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.

I am about to cut out and file bits and pieces from my holidays for future scrapbooking pages. Then I can mark this goal as done!

I finished the Christmas page with photos of my Grandpa, the only pics I have of him before he passed away. Also finished my family and friends page which includes pictures of Bob, a close family friend who also passed away in 2006.
They are a nice tribute to people who were/are important to me. I am such a darned perfectionist though. It’s kind of upsetting cutting up old photos, even though I know I have the negatives somewhere. I guess though I am more likely to look at them in a scapbook rather than if they were sitting in a shoebox.
Some of the photos though I made the mistake of glueing them in and then had to rip them out when I didn’t like the page. So I guess once they are in there, they are there for good.
