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.

My progress on this goal really slowed down after 2009- this one was my only one in 2010. Still, it was a very enjoyable step forward :)2 years ago

It took me a little over two years to get this goal a quarter of the way completed.

Like I said in my first entry, this is a relatively long-term goal ;)2 years ago

TG#7 & #8 April 15, 2007

Another double, and five in one weekend! That’s going to be hard to top. Maybe I need to attend another 43T meetup ;)

TG#6 April 14, 2007

Another step towards completion, and just a day after the last two!

TG#4 & #5 April 13, 2007

My first double!

5/43 is 11.6%

I’m guessing that the few people who have paid any attention to this goal in the last several years have assumed that I had given up on it. Actually, I haven’t given up and progress has been (slowly) made. And I’ve been sort of half-assed keeping track of my progress even though I wasn’t posting on it. A recent question by molliemoonlight about the goal reminded me that I ought to post something about it. I think that I’ve done most of the research I needed to catch up, so I’ll try to catch up with entries over the next few weeks :)2 years ago
