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.

Cracked have posted a couple of times on facebook asking for people to submit pieces for their website, it makes me think that I could try doing that, on the other hand I wonder is it just a trick, like reviewing on Amazon, to try and entice you to visit their website and increase internet traffic to their site on the off chance that you’ll buy their merchandise. 13 months ago

Lark1I dont know were to get started with this one practically

I dont, I’m thinking of looking into writing contests or competitions or even a writers circle or club because I dont have the first clue were to begin.

The last writers circle or literary society which I thought could give me an avenue to explore wasnt even a writers circle any longer but had evolved into something else, a group for performing arts I think.

A lot of the writing groups which I know of or which I know people have passed through wind up focusing upon poetry which is not what interests me, I am more interested in opinion pieces or columnist style writings. 19 months ago

Lark1Been researching magazines.

I’ve got a copy of Philosophy Now this month, also found that I’ve subscribed to The Psychologist when I subscribed to the British Psychological Association and I’ve got the Professional Social Work journal from the British Association of Social Work.

I’m not sure that I could write anything of any value to any of these but it is the sort of things I am reading for different reasons. Not visited any edited websites or blogs. 2 years ago

it is probably the best we could hope for as we come from absolutely unintersting country for editors and so do our validation study. nevermind, we are still not giving up and the comments we got will help us a great deal, so I consider it as a move one step forward. 3 years ago

if we were to call this “respectable” hahaa. it’s a start though. if i get into making decent blogs that are articulate and informative, maybe one of them will be published in something greater.
maybe my blog site will be come that greater thing. check it out! if there’s anything you want me to talk about (in that line of topics), i’d be glad to!

show some love! haha. 3 years ago
