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.

make off-site backups of all digital photos

Celtic Christianwhy didn't I think of this earlier

I just realized that I don’t have to go through the trouble of uploading all of my pictures to the Internet since I already have them burned to DVD, as I can just move the backup DVDs off-site to somewhere else. Tomorrow I’m taking them them in an envelope to seminary with me and I’m going to leave them in my mailbox as a safe off-site location to keep them safe. 7 years ago

Celtic ChristianYahoo photos

I can’t wait until my Yahoo Photo account is rolled over to the new version which among other things lets you download the original full sized images back to your computer. Now that finally Yahoo Photos is a suitable backup as I know that in the worse case situation I can recover my digital pictures by downloading them one by one in the rare event that something happens to both my computer and picture DVDs at the same time. 7 years ago
