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 great. When I first added this to my list last year I thought a couple of people might add it to theirs and a few more might join the MPH and One campaigns. I pretty much figured that this would drop off the bottom of people’s lists this year, but it hasn’t, and were still growing!

Over 100 of us worldwide are still up for this, plus thousands of others who haven’t found 43 things yet ;) – keep up the pressure on your governments people.

If you’re in the UK, why not join People and Planet, Speak, or one of the other Trade Justice Movement members?

buy a wind turbine
But where to put it?

I’ll need to buy (or build) a house to attach it to.

Of course energy efficiency is better than energy generation, so insulation and energy efficient appliances come higher up the list of priorities.

start a blog

Now I just need to keep it up to date…

...I’m already behind.
