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.

ihaveshoosDid It!

Popped it in the post yesterday. Hope Vex’s dad has a great day. 6 years ago

Todd SchoonoverSretan rođendan!

I sent a postcard to him a couple weeks ago, but as his birthday is coming up on the 9th, I went ahead and mailed out an actual birthday card today. I used different stamps for the postcard than what I’m using for the actual birthday card so he’s getting four different stamps from me for his collection.

You can help too by contacting Vex for the address. You can read more about her reasons for doing this here. 6 years ago

AbsnasmIt's in the post.

Sadly, the selection of interesting stamps at my post office was a bit limited, so he’s got rather a dull one of Belfast Cathedral, and a bog-standard 2p one to make up the cost. Whoop whoop. Still, at least the card has boobies on it. Kind of. Well, OK, udders. 6 years ago

ihaveshoosI'm IN

But British stamps = all about the queen’s head

I’ll see what I can do though. Hopefully i’ll be able to get some nice ones 6 years ago

Ms. Sunflower of the FLIRTY PlainsI've already sent one

and I have another one all ready to send, when it gets a little closer to his birthday (which is June 9th). If you’d like to join in the fun, you can get more information from Vex here! 6 years ago
