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.

FindingMyNameMixbook

There’s a website called mixbook.com and it’s one of the coolest online things I’ve ever seen!
You can put any pictures you can get on a computer (you can upload them and take from different sites, like Facebook or Twitter etc) into a virtual book and put any text into it. The book could be about someone who’s passed away and remembering them, or a baby book, a wedding book, or just a book of awesome life events. All kinds of different backgrounds and fonts and colors and nifty little ways to customize. And when you’re all finished with it, you can actually order it and it’ll get printed and sent to you! How awesome is that?!
So I’ve been scrapbooking that way. Seeing as I’m a teenager, most all of my photos I have are on a computer somewhere be that on my Facebook or just saved in my computer files, so I’ve been able to document every important event that I want to remember. And I love doing it! It feels awesome to be working on something and I can’t wait to actually get it in my hands!!! So cool. I definitely suggest everyone check it out. 2 years ago

AnRout Depi MadiPerserving memories in a digital age

I’m a romantic. I’m a total lush for old answering machines with funny messages, family albums under the coffee, animal shaped key holders on the wall, mason jars for drinking, and old fruit shaped refrigerator magnets. As I prepare to move into a place of my own, I know that my home will not be complete with a couple of dozen photo albums for friends new and old to get a feel of my life.
Sadly, I don’t have any actual pictures of my friends, family, events, and memories. I’ve taken tons of pictures but they are all intangible, floating around the internet on random social networking sites. I’ve been going through all my online profiles and downloading all my pictures to my computer. Over a thousand pictures and I’m not even close to being finished. The upside is that now that I’ve done this, I’ve been slowing deleting myself from the internet. In fact, that was my main goal for 2012 before I found this site and I just had to join. I LOVE IT!
I’ve been spending all week organizing my pictures into various folders. Friends, Family, Travels, Parties, Bands, Black and Whites, Strike Anywhere, Atlanta, Mississippi, NYC and many more. Once I get all of them organize I’m taking a folder at a time to Walgreen’s ( my cousin works there. Spending More Time With Loved Ones) and getting them printed out. It’s going to be expensive but I’m soooo excited! Once I get them printed out, I’m going to get some scrapbooks, markers, clippings, stickers, the works.
I can’t wait for the day when I get to show my kids the pictures of me on my 21st birthday! 2 years ago

rhodadesignstudioScrapbooking

I started when my daughter was born. Since then, I have made money selling my designs on eBay, and created a scrapbook supply kit.
Currently, I am teaching myself to scrapbook digitally. I create my own graphics and clip art to use for my layouts. 3 years ago
