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.

wake up when my alarm clock goes off
zzzzz zzz zzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

This seems to be impossible for me, unless I abolutely have to be somewhere really really important at a certain time. If I go to bed earlier I just can’t sleep or else I wake up in the middle of the night, eventually doze back off as the sun is rising, and that’s me out for the count!

Sometimes I switch the snooze off every 5 minutes for a full hour – I would probably be better off getting another proper, uninterrupted, full hours sleep O_O

Doing this again...

I completed this one almost 5 years ago, sorting through 2948 faves! I now find myself back at square one as I haven’t kept on top of it at all and I now have more than ever. I’m actually wondering why I even bother with them as I find it quicker to just use Google to refind whatever particular website, rather than trawling through the bookmarks.

Downloading AM-Deadlink again as can’t find that either!

See all entries ...
