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.

This is something we NEED!

Working on multiple goals with this one! We need a shredder desperately! We currently have two bags filled with information that needs to be shredded – and that doesn’t include what is hiding in the car and other places. Good-quality shredders are expensive, though, which has been keeping us from buying one. Don’t want to buy a POS that breaks before we get a quarter done, but are cautious of spending $75 on something, especially when we didn’t know how long it would take me to get a job. Now that I have one I think we can manage to buy one – the longest I can see waiting is for my first paycheck. But now it is a goal on 43T so I can’t forget about it as easily as I have been!
