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.

bike more

my bro is riding cross-country this summer and there are a lot of legs of the “race” that I woulc like to join him on. hopefully by keeping up on my biking I will be able to keep pace with the guys and do a decent job keeping up with the vans…. we’ll see.

need a nudge

people say that i am a good writer. i have a lot to say, but don’t want to say it unless people want to hear it. which is why a blog is good. blogging would meet a lot of my goals (journal, write thank you notes, write more in general) so i hope this is a skill that i can learn and master quickly. a lot of people put time and energy into their blogs and i hope that i can learn from them easy tricks (how to post a picture/website/song). HELP! {please}

learn oragami
on the path

i bought a book and have successfully made a few things, but none by heart.

i really want to learn a crane, as it is good luck. the rest would just be an added gift!
