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.

about kiva.org, you should definitely check it out. Basically, it’s a site that allows you to give small loans (as little as $25) to people in developing countries to start their own business or get the funds needed to become financially independent and provide for their families. The people who you can give loans to are truely worthy people, and the kiva people go through a process to select them. The best part is, when your money gets repaid, you can then reinvest in someone else’s business. Over a course of time, you could change several people’s lives with a relatively small amount of money. I can’t wait til I get some money, so that I can help one of these people get their business started. I think it will be the end of September when I get my disbursement. 6 years ago
