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.

ssilva11Change of plans

I am going to create online scrapbooks and buy them as I have the money. That way I can get several and give them to the kids as they get older. I love this idea!!! 2 years ago

ssilva11Up next...scrapbooking!

I love scrapbooking, I have since I was a teenager. The problem is that I have all of these pictures and supplies and it is such an overwhelming task (because I of course want to be “caught up”) that I never start it. Well now is as good a time as any. I need a creative outlet and this might as well be it. So it’s time to dust off the scrapbooking supplies, organize the pictures and create a plan. That is the hard part. When I am done with the tedious stuff I can start with the super fun part of reminicing of my kid’s baby years, my wedding, Anthony’s elementary school years, all the kids sport seasons and our life in general. I know I will love it once I start it so I had better get started. The last scrapbook I completed was of Anthony’s pre-school years. Jacob doesn’t even have a baby book complete. Anthony is in middle schoool and Jacob is in second grade so I really am behind! Wish me luck. 2 years ago
