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.

be more organized
the start

almost all of the garage is done! Only one small section remains. Without mercy I have discarded trash, selected items to sell, giveaway to friends and donate! This weekend I hope to post the sell-ables and get them out out out!

Explore and document the place I live (read all 3 entries…)
baby changes everthing!

yet another goal accomplished due in part to having a child. Since I have had her I am constantly seeking out new and cheap (or free) child friendly things to do in my area. This has led me to explore, and in a way document through the photographs I have taken of her. Kind of a three for one on my things list!

take more photographs
kind of cheating

since I had a baby I have been taking photos of her non stop…my fb friends might say too many! but still and all. I am definitely fulfilling this goal each and every day. Although now that she is 3 it gets harder to photograph her life as I am busy participating in it.
