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.

lahey333I did contact and received a response

Hello All,

I emailed about How-I-did-It articles not working properly and got this response:

Hi,

Unfortunately it’s true: After a wonderful 10-year run, 43 Things will be shuttering at the end of July. We are currently working on building an exporting tool so that you can save your goals, accomplishments, and achievements. Hopefully we’ll be able to roll it out in the next few weeks.

In preparation, some of the features of the site may not work. We are very sad to see the site go, and really appreciate your participation and use of 43 Things. We’ll really miss the community.

Good luck, and keep striving.

lahey333change in goal

So this goal used to be “Give blood every 57 days (7 times!) in a year”, but it seems as though that is too much for my body
:(

57 days is the minimum number of days you have to wait (in Ontario, Canada) before you can donate again. But my iron levels weren’t high enough for even the second donation. 4 times in a year, is still pretty high, and I’m going to see if this is possible for me! Maybe 7 times another year in the future.

Time to stock up on iron rich foods! 5 months ago

lahey333Fail!

So I had started this goal this year and on only my second time giving blood, my iron was too low to donate. I have never given blood so close together before and the nurse was saying that women are especially at risk of developing low iron when they donate as much as twice in a year.

I was pretty upset about it, but there’s really nothing I can do. I’m going to plan my donations more carefully (like not on my period, also makes your iron drop for women) and I’m going to load up on iron-rich foods like clams and mussels the week before. Hopefully I will be able to donate at least four times in a year! 5 months ago

Hey there! Congrats on your efforts. Changing a lifestyle is never easy and, I think, takes a lot of baby steps to pull off. So keep going, and good job! 12 months ago

Thanks so much and good luck with all your goals! I was looking through them, and I have done some bootcamps and they are amazing, a very worthwhile goal. Go easy on yourself as well, cheers!
