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.

Dana is...bringing her own sunshine2014

Well, it has been too long (just like last time!) – I have done so much soul searching and finally put aside the education degree for an English one…still a long way to go, but hoping in time I complete my Masters (aiming high) and end up teaching creative writing! How is that for a goal?! 8 months ago

Dana is...bringing her own sunshineWork...

Well I have been at the non profit job now about 9 1/2 months. It is rewarding, but the most emotional and demanding job I have ever had. I don’t feel I can continue my personal goals (taking classes, hobbies, etc.) while working at this job. I had volunteered with the organization for 5 years before being hired full time. I enjoy it and still feel passionate about it, but it’s draining me. I would rather go back to volunteering for them, not working here. :-( I have an opportunity (possibly) to go back to my old job…I am considering it! 3 years ago
