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.

I am feeling a little better. I hope that I can get back on track after all of this. 2 years ago

BlueFernImprovement :)

Visible improvement. It is now quite difficult to see evidence of the facial trauma I suffered last year. I still feel aches and pains and differences but I am confident that I will heal 100%. As far as the other injuries from the incident, I still have to rehabilitate my arm, back, side, and ankle. I have to regain strength so that day-to-day tasks are not so difficult. 2 years ago

This is getting easy. My goal was to stop playing all video & PC games for a while because I spent too much time with them. Now that I have broken that habit I am trying to play them again, in moderation. :) 2 years ago

BlueFernAnother success

Another success in this goal category. 2 years ago

BlueFernThe injuries look subtle now.

My facial injuries are improving so I am starting to look better. I look almost like I did before, but I am not 100% yet. I still feel aches in the injured areas that are very distracting. Overall, I have less energy than I did before. It has been hard psychologically to go through this, but I am determined to recover. 2 years ago

BlueFernMy arm is finally recovering a little.

I did a quick clean up. My routine is not as effective as I want it to be. It is difficult to complete housework with injuries. 2 years ago

BlueFernI am just listening, but this is an awesome warm-up...

I watched The Transformers, a favorite show of mine, in Japanese. 2 years ago
