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.

Just want to wish a Very Happy Belated Birthday!!!!!!!!!! 7 years ago

meliflowerHello Hermes!

I believe I already did this…you and I were discussing what husbands do (or do not) do on special holidays.

Well I want to take one more opportunity to tell you I hope your day, your month, your year is just grand, and that regardless of what husbands do (or do not), you are very special, and if you ever have a moment of doubt, you only have to look in the eyes of two little angels to be reminded of how very important it is that you were born.

Cheers darling, I wish you so much happiness this year and am glad you were born and are here on 43T!

Hermes13’s birthday was April 13 and the birthday fairies failed to acknowledge it with a goal. Well, it’s never too late, so this goal is for her.

Here are my belated birthday wishes for the coming year:

May she find the motivation to exercise every day, for that will get her in shape so she completes her personal challenge and doesn’t have to join Weight Watchers as she’ll also have lost weight. May she have the time and funds to have some fun travels this year, whether it be to new museums or back to Berlin, or just a weekend getaway with the hubby. And may her muses bless her with creative flashes, possibly inspiring her to convert the attic into an awesome library. 7 years ago
