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.

TG#25 August 18, 2014

25/43 = 58.1%

Well, I didn’t think I’d get to post this one because I expected the site to be read-only by now, but it looks like I’m going to be able to slip in one more entry on this long-term goal. Unfortunately, I’m going to have to take the goal to PopClogs for completion. But despite the demise of 43T, I’m definitely not giving up on it! :)

Any 43ers in Missouri who would like to help out while I’m there in October? You can find me on PopClogs as “43erTG” 4 months ago

TG#24 November 20, 2013

24/43 = 55.8%

Three steps forward in four days- that’s my most rapid progress in years! And this was the last in another four-step year :)

So far I don’t have any definite plans for this goal for 2014, but it looks like I’ll probably be around Huntsville, Alabama in July and northwestern Washington state in August. Any 43ers I know in those areas (or between Denver and those areas, since both will likely be road trips) who would like to help me? PM me if you’d like details before you commit ;) 10 months ago

TG#23 November 19, 2013

23/43 = 53.5%

Another step in achieving this goal, just 3 days after the last one! :)10 months ago

TG#22 November 16, 2013

22/43 = 51.1%

This one took me over the halfway point! And it’s the farthest I’ve ever traveled to complete a step on this goal. (I should note, though, that working on this goal is only a secondary objective when I meet up with 43ers).

Thanks, TD :)11 months ago

TG#21 October 22, 2013

21/43 = 48.8%

Just a few days over a year since I last made any progress on this goal, but this was the start of a good run ;)

And so close to halfway completed at this point! 12 months ago
