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.

teddy0009I feel what you feel

Someone will find the note “Dark blue, dark blue, have you ever been alone in a crowded room?” in the book “Remembrance of things past” by Marcel Proust. I did it because I’m not the only one who feels that way and I want to share this song with others. I feel happy and creative. You are not the only one! 13 months ago

That GirlToday

I opened a library book and found a note in it. I was so excited because I had found someone doing the same weird things as me.

The note said:

“I rubbed this book on my ball sack.”

So I was not only let down, but I also had to leave the library to wash my hands. 2 years ago

ninjahug1st step

I have signed up to the library again – I was buying a lot of books and stopped using the library some time ago.
Recently I gave some of my books away to the library and I decided to sign up again.
Now I can work on this goal :) 2 years ago

missmorgan389First note - done!

It is actually my second note, but the first one from my phone didn’t send. Hope you like the quote! 2 years ago

twinker_tinkerFirst note!

Today I wrote a note and leaved it in a book that I’ve just finished reading (Where Rainbow Ends by Cecelia Ahern)

I hope the next person who borrows this book will be delighted to see a inspirational note inside. =) 2 years ago

Gotta get to the library… but glad I finally found a use for those extra pages in the front/back of the book! 2 years ago
