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.

I couldn’t resist taking this photo at the Jim The Wonder Dog celebration yesterday. They had contests in several catagories that made it possible for anyone’s dog to compete: A dress up contest, A Jim the Wonder Dog look alike contest, A What makes my dog special trick competition. 7 months ago

This sweet fellow was a victim of abuse and has now been rescued. I saw him while waiting in line at our local Orschelns yesterday while buying flea medicine for our cats and was allowed to snap a photo. 15 months ago

Our neighbor Keith’s husky mix. He adopted Watson after the dog’s original family felt overwelmed by it’s outgoing personality. 15 months ago

It was only 36 degrees outside yesterday in spite of the sunshine so it was probably okay that these two were in this car with the windows up. 21 months ago

You heard of a cat on a hot tin roof. Well, these are dogs on an asphalt roof but on a cool day in February. 22 months ago

I was driving past a business when I saw this fellow wandering around the parking lot. I pulled in for a closer look and we both found ourselves staring each other down. I snapped a photo from the safety of my car and drove off wondering if whoever left him was close by or coming back. He had no collar that I could see. 2 years ago

I missed this one earlier. I took this sometime in August. The bigger dog is Chief whom I already posted a photo. The smaller dog is a neighbor’s dog. I think th dogs were waiting for an invitation to join. 2 years ago

Typical yard dog on a chain. I hate seeing a dog on a chain. I realise it is sometimes a necesary evil. 2 years ago

I don’t know whether you walk this dog or he walks you. 2 years ago

Someone walking his dog. This is not the photo I wanted. I wanted to get a better photo of the dog but I think this fellow believed I was invading his privacy. I would have only taken a photo of the dog had he let me. Instead, he turned around and headed back the oposite way before I could ask him if I could take a photo of his dog. Most people I have approached don’t seem to mind if I ask first. 2 years ago

I see more dogs riding in the beds of pick up trucks. this truck actually had three dogs. One dog was on his hind legs with his front paws resting on the tailgate of the truck. Once the vehicle began moving, he jumped down and I couldn’t see him.. 2 years ago

This little fellow was giving me his full attention from inside a closed up car. Lucky for him, it had been raining and cooler with no sun out so he wasn’r left sweltering inside. 2 years ago
