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.

JodieSparkesMarking this as done

Because it saved me today.
What a beautiful, glorious, wonderful idea.

I’m going to stick with it, but just reading back over the quotes I’d collected over the last few months tonight helped clear up everything in my head.
Especially a Voltaire one, that’s become my mantra for the summer.
Wow :] 5 years ago

JodieSparkesI'll mark this as done

When I go away to university in September.
I think maybe I’ll need it then more than ever. 5 years ago

Loving doing this :] 5 years ago

JodieSparkesCaught up

Chucked in a few lyrics that I rather liked.
And found a Michael Palin quote that I feel sums me up perfectly. 5 years ago

JodieSparkesFallen behind

I’ll do a catchup today :] 5 years ago

JodieSparkesAbout a week in

I’ve realised most of my quotes take on a “let’s take risks, let’s go wild, let’s make the most of life” sort of flavour.

Perhaps time for some variety?
It’s nice having these those, especially when you go trawling through websites to find a quote for the day. Suddenly one strikes you and you’re searching for a pencil to put it in the notebook.

It’s glorious :] 5 years ago


I’m going to keep it for a year.
What an excuse to faff around on ThinkExist :] 5 years ago
