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.

On PopClogs

Well, I’m new on PC and so far I don’t see a way to find another user just by their user name. Search doesn’t work for that, at least for me. So for anyone looking for me, here is a link to my new account there.

So long, my dear friends on 43T.



Stay in touch with 43 thing friends :-) (read all 2 entries…)
I'll Miss 43Things!

But I’m so happy I can keep many of the connections I made here. I have created a new account on PopClogs, my user name there is Carm. I see there is a goal there of “Find my friends from 43 Things.” If you add that as a goal it will show you everyone who has the goal, and you can also find me on that list and hopefully find some of your other friends there.

It’s so sad to see this end of an era, but I suppose all good things must come to an end. I hope to see you over at PC.



Bid a fond farewell to this site in the old style
Thank you...

To the Robots for creating this site. I’m sure they had no idea how far this would go and what wonderful connections and support they would enable.

And a huge thank you to all the community members, many of whom have become my friends. I sure will miss all of the lovely people who connected with me here. Those who supported me, and those it was my pleasure to support.

I’m very sad to see 43T go, but also happy there is another site that will hopefully be able to fill some of the same needs. I just signed up over at PopClogs. I grabbed the user name “Carm” over there, so it should be easy to find me.

Farewell, 43T. We will miss you.
