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.

So far

As of right now, I’ve given away all of my cheers.

Cheer 448—To New Isabella for her Monday goals. I think this is such a great goal. I might have to adopt this one myself.

Cheer 449—Heptagram for graduating college with a 4.0 GPA. Go for it! With lots of hard work, I know you can do it.

Cheer 450—Texas Lin, for her morning walk in Whitefish. I can’t think of a better way to spend the morning.

Cheer 451—To missxoxoxo, I hope she gets Frankenstein read. It’s a great novel.

Only 49 more to go! I hope I get more cheers soon so I can give away even more cheers today.

Getting close!

Only 76 left to go!

Getting close!

I just gave my 401st cheer. Only 99 more to go!

I need to

Get on a stick about this. I’ve been a member of 43T for ages, and I’ve still got 120 cheers left to go. I’m going to be more diligent about this from now on. For myself, I find that the cheers and comments I get really help keep me encouraged and motivate me when I really need it. The least I can do is return the favor to others.
