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.

When I originally added this to my list it was during a time when I ran a shit music blog that no one cared about. Whilst that went no where, I also had a personal blog which I’ve continued posting on up until now, and I definitely feel like I’m a better blogger. This is mainly in terms of my writing, which is much more interesting (if I may say so myself) and there’s a real sense a progression in comparison to what I blogged about in 2009. So yeah. 2 years ago

discipline was all I actually needed, in this case ;-) 3 years ago

ukwouldbegeeketcgirlMy blogging skills need to be improved after seeing the fabulously effective work done by comparable bloggers

Blogging wise I just am not doing as well as I should in reaching my target audience with my blogging hence the need for improvement.
Blogging for me on one count has been a journalistic exercise, on the other a theoretical philosophical reading exercise. Either way I am not getting the credit I deserve for genuinely original contributions made via blogosphere. 3 years ago

hippocampus243 I'm proud of my blog.

I think I’ve about achieved this. I am proud of my blog, and I would be proud if someone found it. 3 years ago

muddartthis one has gone down hill :)

Well, I have been doing one of my other 43 things, which is to get my masters degree, so blogging has by and large gone by the wayside. I’ll get back to it eventually. 3 years ago

Rachel MarieSome photography of mine I am quite pleased with and proud of :)

I am a Tumblr blogger and amateur but aspiring young photographer and lately I have been feeling down and feeling like giving up blogging because people seem to only reblog and ‘like’ the photos that aren’t mine/the inspiration photos I reblog, but I want MY photography to get out there and be seen because I am proud of it and think it is worth a look.
I am getting frustrated with my work being taking for granted and overlooked.
I want some attention on my photography :(

So here are a couple of my recent photographs:
(hope you like)

So pretty please check out my Tumblr, Photography Tumblr, and Blogspot for more. :) 3 years ago

chamnesiaI blog to express my own thoughts.

I blog to express my own personal feelings. I am a personal blogger. Whenever something has happened in my life, I blog about it. People are free to read about it whenever they feel like it. haha. But I don’t have the heart to advertise it to the people I know in real life. That is the reason why I keep my blogging life a secret from my friends.

But even so, when I blog, I feel like I’m only blogging for myself. Well, yes, that might be true. But still, the reason why I feel that way is because I realize that no one reads my posts (save for myself and this other one person). So yeah. I feel not so appreciated but still, I continue blogging. :) 4 years ago

tarah86Improving - Goal set

I currently have enough posts scheduled to last all of September and will add posts when I have an urge to. I’m trying to add posts every 2 days. The only thing I now have to work on is adding a better template for my blog – it’s so 2004, but I like it, however, I don’t think my target audience like it. 4 years ago

Shaine MataEditorial Calendar

Part of the problem I face is that I blog whenever it strikes me. To develop an audience, however, you need to be consistent. I have not.

I am working on an editorial calendar. I have several “projects” that require updates. 4 years ago
