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.

TG#7 I'm diligent about writing postcards

I know that I’m not the only one who enjoys receiving postcards- lots of people do. I always keep a sheet of addresses in my wallet so I can send postcards to people while I’m traveling. I currently have about 35 people on that list- some family, some long-time friends, and a lot of 43ers who have sent me cards regularly or who have expressed interest in receiving cards. I almost always send a card to everyone on the list when I’m on vacation, and if I see something in particular that I think someone will like, I send more than one. This last trip was an unusually long one (16 days!) and I sent probably close to 50 cards out while I was gone :)12 months ago

Daffer_Kent4. My sense of humour

I suspect it doesn’t come over in my writing and posts here, but I do enjoy humour.

Last night, me and DH watched “Paul”, a movie about two British nerds helping an alien. It is FUNNY! Kristen Wiig was almost unrecognisable with one eye, and then she was recognisable. She looked familiar but it took me a while to place her. She played a god-bothering cyclops, and when Paul gave her all this knowledge, she immediately wanted to swear, fornicate and have some fun. The swearing was really funny, as she got the hang of it.

You’ve seen “Bridesmaids” right?! 13 months ago
