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.

RuthGHappy birthday, PFM!

There were purple (well, lavender) phlox in one of the poems I sent to a contest today, & they have spilled over to wish you a beautiful, fragrant, restful-yet-invigorating celebration of your Natal Day!

May this be a year of focus & clarity for you. May you grow stronger & fitter, may your work life be fulfilling & remunerative, may your teens bring you much laughter & not too many gray hairs! 7 years ago

Todd SchoonoverHappy Birthday

It’s past midnight here and since I’m leaving early in the morning to go to my Ghost Hunters event I’m going to take this opportunity to give PurpleFiberMom my birthday wishes. I just discovered that even though she and I have cheered and commented each other for a couple years, I’ve never subscribed to her. I’m going to have to correct that oversight.

Over the coming year, may she find a new job or maybe start her own business in order to increase her income. May she find the motivation to work on her household projects from tearing down the wallpaper in the kitchen to cleaning out the garage. And may she make exercise a habit, because in doing so she’ll quickly progress on losing those 50 pounds while also setting a good example for her kids. 7 years ago

nonnacookbookerMany happy returns PurpleFiberMom.....

.... may this coming year be an awesome one for you. In line with your goal for healthy snacks and eating regularly through the day, I though I would whip up some very nutritious carrot cup cakes. Maybe you could freeze them, and take 1 in each day for a healthy treat!!

Hope your day is a wonderful one and may it be filled with love and joy. All the very best ~ Nonna x 7 years ago
