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.

somekindofalchemistI think I might do this instead of getting a job

The competition is fewer, I can justify ‘gaps’ in my CV and I would actually enjoy giving compared to being in a cubicle or a shop. I won’t be earning any money but I don’t have huge expenses (I am still with my folks). It means I won’t be able to take driving lessons (although my mum did offer to pay for them because she wants me to drive so I can drive her to the shops every Saturday which is a reasonable deal but i’d feel guilty). I have long term plans to develop a business so I won’t be bothering my folk for too long. I think a community project relating to the arts might be useful.

Trying to think about what I can offer… 5 months ago

I was having trouble finding a place to volunteer this summer (and most of the places I e-mailed didn’t even reply to me, which was the least they could do, really), but I finally found a place to go! I am going to start volunteering at my local library starting next week. It’s only for a couple of months, until school begins, but it’s a good start and I think it’s going to be really fun. 5 months ago

I really hoped this would be a goal I could finally mark as done – it’s been hanging around more or less since I joined 43t. But although they accepted me as a volunteer I’ve heard nothing further from Anthony Nolan and now isn’t the time to follow it up.

I’m letting this goal go for now. 5 months ago

blueraspberrySo I've been doing this!

I signed myself up for pretty much every event going at my local hospice! Just helping out at their various fairs doing everything from taking donations at the door, serving teas & coffees and packing everything all away after.

I’m enjoying the experience, even more than I thought I would and I am looking forward to helping at many more events! 6 months ago
