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.

Lack of inspiration

I gave up on this quite a long time ago. I kept having to take pictures of my desk, or something on a train or whatever. It got boring for me, so I quit it.

I probably do take more photos now than I did before I started the project, so I’m not too sad about failing it. I don’t think I’ll try it again for a while though.

63/365 - Lizz

Lizz and I went for a walk in the woods and I took this picture of Lizz shortly after she took her Project 365 picture. :)

62/365 - Cat grass

I was in B&Q with Dave and we were looking at seeds. Most of the packets have the plant as the main focus of the picture, and so I thought this one was rather funny.

Grow your own cat, from seed!

61/365 - Can ducks climb trees

No, ducks can’t climb trees. Why would they need to be able to though? They can fly!

I have no idea what this duck thought it was doing, but it just stayed there.

60/365 - Funeral

It was Dave’s mum’s funeral. I didn’t know what to take a picture of until Dave sat down on the horse ride.

59/365 - Nice clouds

I saw these clouds as I was walking into the train station. They were so nice looking that I walked back out and took this picture.

58/365 - Bagel and bacon face

I made a face using my bagel and bacon. Exciting!

57/365 - Seed trays

Planted some red onions and these are the seed trays. I forgot to take a picture until very late at night, so it’s not very good quality. I was too tired to bother with a better one.

56/365 - Moon, star, Sainsburys, Lizz

Took this with my phone before buying a chicken in the supermarket.

55/365 - Lengthy window instructions

I went to Dave’s dad’s house and got to look around for the first time. I noticed the sticker on the window and thought it was a bit lengthy for such a simple instruction.
