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.

tabascokidThere's an easy way and a rewarding way...

With so many websites, newspapers and magazines out there wanting content, simply getting a picture published is relatively easy. However, this requires you giving your picture away for free. Anyone can do this. I mean anyone.

To get true satisfaction, you need to get paid. It doesn’t matter how much at first but payment is the difference between a chump and someone who’s photograph is actually valued. I’m not talking hundreds of pounds here. Just enough so that you don’t work for free.

Now, onto the getting published part. As I previously said, outlets need content so think what content they need. Have you attended an interesting event? Have you witnessed something of interest? Did you get pictures of those lovely bluebells in bloom when you were in the park? Start at a local level and work up. You are more likely to get a picture used in a local paper first as they love locally-sourced content.

I’ve got more stories, tops and advice on my ste at I’m also on twitter on @tabascokid

Hope that helps and good luck! 18 months ago
