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.

Very sorry I’m late,
Put it down to fate.
Next year I’ll be on time,
I won’t repeat my crime.

I hope this is the year you get to stand inside a dust dirt devil. It’s worth it!

Todd SchoonoverHappy Belated Birthday

Now her page says her birthday was January 1st, but I’m going to say that everyone else is right and it was yesterday (April 17th). Still it wouldn’t be the first time that we celebrated someone’s unbirthday. Here are my wishes for Alaythia for the coming year:

May family continue to be a focus in her life daily, whether it be creating new traditions or digitizing family photo albums. May she encounter people that she can learn from and enjoy spending time with them (thereby becoming less introverted, and possibly learning Russian or at least widening her tea horizons). And may she find the motivation she needs to exercise regularly (without becoming an aerobics instructor). 6 years ago

Collectorofcats Happy Birthday 1 Day Late Alaythia

It is a belated birthday wish for you today.
I didn’t read the invite right away.
So instead of sending you greetings when I should,
I’m sending them now as soon as I could.
I’m making this rhyme at this unbelieveable hour.
