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.

yogamom07Thank you notes

I sent thank you notes to a few people who sent me things during my hospital stay. 2 years ago

LucidNixieMostly done.

I wrote them all and brought them to the post, but somehow two of them fell out of the pile and got lost. I’ll probably find them in my car. I’m not going to re-write them because I can’t remember who I’ve already sent cards to…oh well. Done! 2 years ago

ComicalRutone down so far

It seems that sometimes the smallest tasks often the hardest to complete. 3 years ago

JaneDelightFinished them yesterday...

...and sent them off. Have already received 16 replies, most of which contain either a form of “I like you too” or a “I’m so happy you wrote” message. A friend I haven’t spoken to in years wrote close to a whole novel, which is also pretty fab. So yeah, taking the time to thank people, telling them how glad you are they are in your life and getting back in touch with old ones is pretty worthwhile :) 3 years ago


17 out of 39 done! 22 to go… tomorrow (or latest the day after) I’ll finish the rest =) 3 years ago

JaneDelightfor the last year

Christmas spirit still around, I wanted to tell the people I met this year how valuable my encounter with them has been for me, to let old friends know I’d like to have increased contact with them in the future and generally thank people who’ve helped me in various situations in the past year. Distance and time and money being a factor, facebook will aid me :D 3 years ago

vzucco87The Plan

Since it has been about 5 months since my wedding, I’m thinking it would be really redonkulous to send out thank you notes now. So I think I’m just going to combine Christmas cards with thank you notes. Maybe get some printed with our picture on it like a cheesy family with reindeer sweaters. Yeah! Procrastination! 4 years ago
