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.

Dead WriterSimply, this is a goal that involves a lot of self will.

I think I need to set up a regular schedule for this.

I may even use .

And a stopwatch.

Creating an end goal will likely also help. 10 months ago

Michal I'm doing much better at this thanks to

not every day but 4 to 5 days a week and the whole three pages for over a month now. Since the end of april anyway.
This will always be a work in progress, but I feel I’ve made a good start.
I’ve worked on some of my longer pieces.
I’ve worked more on the memoir.
I’m happy with this right now. 18 months ago

Michal i have a week long streak going.

As soon as I have some spare cash, I’m going to become a patron at 750.words.

It’s really helping me. I’m doing it finally, just doing it. 19 months ago

Michal back to basics.

i started to use this site again. I like the badges. I get a prize for writing, I write more.
i couldn’t keep it up in my Penzu journal alone. I find that once I write my 750 words, cr** words mostly, I then do go to Penzu and write again.
So I recommend for those of you who are finding they have a hard time writing consistently.
Now to take my own advice…bye bye 20 months ago
