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.

ON TIME, Easter cards for my Sister’s children. While these are for her children, I know she and her husband appreciate knowing that I am thinking of the boys. I’m often pretty disorganized, and when you are 9 years old, an Easter card 2 weeks late is just “crazy” so I am very pleased that these will be winging their way to their household this week… 21 months ago

I’ve been living in the same area as my sister and brother now since June. I’ve tried to spend time with my brother and his new wife and their baby, but they’re pretty much loners who get easily preoccupied with their own things. I’ve walked downtown on several occasions to stop by and visit my sister where she works, which is nice, and spent lots of time with her kids (whenever she needs a sitter, and some other times). We’ve taken each other out to lunch on a few occasions, too. It’s been good, but I need to keep it up. I’m thinking of moving soon, so I need to find a way to connect that will still work when I’m not in town. For now, I’m going to consider this “done,” since I’ve definitely improved things, but will post more specific goals regarding these relationships in the future. 23 months ago

Obviously I’ll continue to maintain and improve our relationships, but we’re all on a stellar track to continuing it with ease. :) 2 years ago

Thanks to ambler, I realized I needed to add an entry.

My older brother and I have a better relationship probably for a year and half now. I decided to be of help to them in terms of my nephew and niece’s education. I wish I could help them more. I pray that God will help me to help them. 2 years ago
