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.

oops – slipped a bit as I hurt my back and haven’t felt like doing much else – am DEFINITELY going back to plan A of choosing what I’m going to watch and doing other stuff in between

going well!

Planned what I was going to watch last night – “love soup” and the News – didn’t really enjoy Love Soup, but I caught up with the news (one of my other “things”) and did the ironing (another one of my “things”) so all in all feel quite pleased with myself – it’s funny how some “things” help you achieve other “things”!!

Began this last night – decided that in order to get a balance and not be too extreme in my resolution, the way to do this is to plan what TV programmes I want to watch, and then go and do other things in between, rather than sit on the settee like a couch potato and flick through the channels until I find something only half worth watching (or not worth watching at all!!)

wendywoo has gotten 2 cheers on this goal.
