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.

safrolistics136 so far this year.

Although I have no idea how many I’ve released in other years…. I’ve never kept a tally before. 2 years ago

imajicas43thingsWell i'm rubbish!

I’ve just released two books but that hardly gets close to the “10 by Christmas” that i’d promised myself. Oops. Will try to keep it up this time. 5 years ago

imajicas43thingsWhen i'll mark this as complete...

I have released one book this month and am due to release a couple more over the coming weeks. I think if i’ve released 10 by Christmas i’ll consider this completed. After that i’ll be living very near an OBXZ so it will be easy to keep up. 6 years ago

sunlightbubReleased 5 today Delemere Forest – no JE’s yet, but I’m hopeful! 7 years ago

erinyesTo Much Work...

Bookcrossing is not my thing. It is to much work to register books and no one gives fed back.

I am not much of a reader anymore. 7 years ago

camisIn the wild

I thin I can safely mark this as doen as I am now regulalry releasing books. Out of 30 I’ve released so far this month I’ve had 4 caught and journalled – yay!! Plus a book I released over 3 years ago has recently been journalled as well, so never gove up hope on getting a catch. 7 years ago

I love and its principle of committing random acts of literacy! 7 years ago

imajicas43thingsShould work well with my '50 books in 2007' thing

If I can wild release 50 books this year i’ll be happy :) Maybe i’ll actually get a release of mine caught this year! 7 years ago

tiggsybabesNot a good year for me

I hardly wild released any books last year as my PND just made me not be bothered by most of the things that I love doing. I’m starting my 43 things list again for 2007, so am having a tidy up. 7 years ago


changing goal to one specifically for 2007 8 years ago
