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.

apapaneon Hawaii time and late again with birthday wishes

Was your day fabulous? May the year ahead be lined with crooked trees wherein happy face spiders have woven tapestries to delight.

Here is a tree for your collection. Not so crooked but decidedly weird.

Todd SchoonoverHappy Birthday

When I first adopted this birthday goal my mind immediately went to the beautiful artwork of Christopher Conte. Conte used to work as a prosthetist, building prostethic limbs for amputees. In 2008 he abandoned that work to pursue his interest as a sculptor and miniaturist full-time. The photo attached is an example of his steampunk spiders from the Steel Widow series. I’m sure you will agree with me that his creation is both beautiful and a little creepy. Here are my wishes for Legerd for the coming year:

May his creative muses inspire him regularly so that he can write that story for his niece or throw together a proposal for a CBC radio show. May he remember to take his camera with him so that when he encounters something snap-worthy he has his camera with him. And may he met someone here on 43Things that can teach him to play the harmonica. 4 years ago
