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.

For old time sake, I spent the morning voting on NW. I did this not just for the copious amount of cheers (which I’ll dole out to anyone still hanging around) but also to help clean this place up before the end. 43T shouldn’t go out like a punk with spammers clogging the pipes.

Cheers to all & best wishes on fulfilling all of your future goals!!

Join me and help me fight to end lupus now!

Hi All ~ It’s that time again. Please consider supporting me & team Lupus Schmupus in the Walk for Lupus Now on Saturday, September 20, 2014.

There are more than 1.5 million Americans diagnosed with Lupus. For myself and those I love, I will be helping to raise funds this year’s for the Walk To End Lupus Now. I have set a fundraising goal for the Lupus Foundation of America, Greater Ohio Chapter and need your help to reach my donation goal. We are raising life-changing dollars for Lupus research and education.

You can help me reach my goal by making a donation online. Click on the link below and you will be taken to my personal donation page where you can make a secure online donation.

Lupus is a chronic, potentially life threatening autoimmune disease that can cause damage to virtually any organ in the body, especially the skin, joints, blood, and kidneys.

Thank you so much for your support, it’s greatly appreciated! Together, we can make a tremendous difference!

Thanks ~

Tartsy aka Traci
