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.

Years ago I made a lotus flower and with the help of the internet I have relearned it. Below are pictures of the flowers I can currently make:

I really want to learn how to make a rose. I’ve followed dozens of online instructions and videos but there’s a couple of steps that I just can’t get. I also found some instructions for an azalea, which looks really pretty, but again there’s an instruction that I don’t understand. Just have to keep trying I guess! 6 years ago

AmeyamiI'm the only person with this goal (again!)

I’ve been doing origami since I was about 9 but I haven’t done much for years. The creation I was always proudest of was a flower and it’s still the one that I’m best at. I’d love to be able to create a whole bouquet of paper flowers but I think it would be really dull if they all looked the same, so I’d like to learn a variety of different styles. Last night I learned another one so I’ve got 2/10.

I think that this is going to be a very challenging goal. There are lots of instructional videos on YouTube for origami flowers and the results are beautiful but they’re very complicated to make. 6 years ago
