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.

I was quite a frequent blogger to one of the countries English language newspaper website. I’m very much a dilettante but it got me writing & sometimes there’s the occasional praise I get from the people I covered. It’s far from writing a book but it’s writing and having some people reading it. I also wrote some articles that were published on the paper. :) Still far from my goal though 20 months ago

...NaNoWriMo is over, and I didn’t quite win. I got within four thousand words of fifty thousand when midnight struck. But the next day, I finished up the story, and so now I have a first draft of a story I’m fairly happy with to work on. 3 years ago

TheDoctorGirlI signed up...

...for NaNoWriMO. I didn’t sign up until the 5th, my habit of not going on the computer on Sundays, and the rest of my life make it virtually impossible for me to finish a novel by the end of the month, but I’m hoping that it will at least give me the motivation to get a suitable start on one. 3 years ago

kottaveii LOVE HAIKU!

i began writing a book of haiku …which i found out later was actually senryu. haiku use the traditional format of 5-7-5 syllables to punctuate a point and reference nature, senryu is the same format but speak to the human spirit. i statred this with the intention to write the book and was unexpectedly picked up by a local publisher! i hope you all will purchase my first release in a line of many to come “mentalcourse: modern erotic senryu” by Kottavei 3 years ago

TheDoctorGirlOh, the failure!

I’m not going to complete this personal challenge in time either. I mean I have four days and I haven’t even finished writing the book. I haven’t even decided on a topic. Well, it must be said: I suck at this. I am not a good writer what so ever. I’m not one that writes because they must, but one who writes because she can. 3 years ago
