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.

I knew it wouldn’t last. Terrible month to try this in anyway, what with the weather changing and stuff goin’ around. Well, if anybody has an organization they would suggest I volunteer for, I’m all ears. 3 years ago

missmorgan389Oh, great

I’m sick. Isn’t this awful? I decided to hop on the treadmill for a quarter mile but much more than that I would have been dead. I’m proud to say that at least I have run a little bit everyday.. even if it’s only a little. 3 years ago

missmorgan389Day Two

volunteered with Habitat for Humanity today. I thought it was great! I can’t wait to do it again.. so much fun, especially with a large group. We all entertained each other and it made the time go by so quickly. I can imagine myself being involved in this more frequently.

Aftewards my brother and I took the dogs for a walk and we half ran and half walked. I say, yes, this counts! Day Two complete; I’m off to a good start 3 years ago

missmorgan389Day One: Success

I set my alarm for five and surprisingly had no trouble getting up. I did a gentle run, about 6.5 mph then I bumped it up to 8 for half a mile. My goal is to run a casual 8 mph; nothing would please me more. Today is going to be the hard part.. I’m volunteering all day and then I have stuff going on in the evening. Gotta complete this no matter what! 3 years ago

missmorgan389Good thing it's not April yet

Have not run in the last few days. Oops. I know I’m going to have to start getting up early to do this; I just have no time in my life anymore. But I still press on.. April, I feel, is going to be a great month. And I already planned my May challenge =P

I’m excited! 3 years ago

missmorgan389Gearing up

Here is my “big goal of the month.” I’ve been running like a maniac for the last four years, but I don’t think I’ve went running everyday. It’ll definitely be a challenge because I know if I’m busy after school I’ll need to set my alarm for five to workout, which isn’t exactly pleasant before school.

But even if I can’t do a full workout, per se, I can still run a little bit (around the block, a quarter of a mile) and still realize that I did do my part for the day, even if it was really little.

Honestly, it’s difficult seeing me doing this for the whole month. But I’m going to think about it constantly, so I don’t forget about it. Six more days. 3 years ago
