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.

CharlotteAliceI had completely put this aside.

But after losing my new phone which had some photos that I had yet to transfer I realised that I need to make this more of a priority.

I have backed up all my photos and will be going through those from my recent pictures of my trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour.

I am aiming to have these sorted, printed and in an album by the end of August. I would set it up as my personal challenge but I’ve already got one on there!

I will then continue to work my way through all my photos in the same way. Hopefully I can the start the habit of doing this straight away instead of ignoring them. 2 years ago

CharlotteAliceDigital Photo Frame

As well as printing all my photos and organising my albums I want to put some pics on my digital photo frame that I have unearthed whilst having my ‘winter clean’ (Why have a spring clean when you can start the new year already clean is what I’m going for).

I’m not going to make that a separate goal, I’ll just lump it in with this one. :) 3 years ago

CharlotteAliceI have HUNDREDS of photos...

...and they’re just sitting there. Either on my camera or on the computer where I never look at them. At least if I had them developed I cut put them in an album or at least flick through the packet every now and again.

I’ve found a great link to quite a few sites offering free prints for a little bit of p&p which means I don’t even have to trek down into town and stand at a kiosk to do it!

Incase anyone else is interested the link is: 3 years ago
