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.

Optionally_MineI love ..

The postcard secret idea so when I first joined 43Things and saw this goal I added it .. but it would be more for fun than anything else plus I worry about handing it over to some strange look from the random Post Office Cashier as happens with international posting .. feeling judged, being silly, I can’t go for that. 4 months ago

MeRossyTo send or not...

Well I still have not sent a post secret postcard but I did make one. Again it was an effort to get over my ex. Making it let me get rid of some anger, but looking at it now, I’m glad I didn’t send it. It wouldn’t have been for me it would have been for revenge. 7 months ago

Krissy Tuffield-KingI just finished it...

I just finished my postsecret and am leaving now to put it in a drop box at the gas station so that I don’t chicken out.
It’s relieving and unnerving. I wonder if anyone will ever see it… 15 months ago
