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.

stop binge-eating
Struggled with Binge eating

I’ve struggled with this from november 09 till now. I have gone through all the different lows of this condition and am beginning to make progress. Through overeaters anonymous and other help I haven’t overeaten for a week plus and am feeling great. Just trusting that God can and will take this away from me.

write a book
Science Fiction? Testimony? College Related?

I have lots of ideas, but can’t choose! Hopefully I will eventually choose an idea and get to the point of publishing it!

Read the Bible
I started a 365 day bible

By January 1st, 2010 I will have read the Bible! I have kept this goal since January of this year, so it can only continue!
