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.

youdoit2yourselfwell not quiet my target...

... not quite 25 books huh. Yeah, i was a bit rubbish at this, this year and i know exactly where i am putting my blame; my smart phone!! It just takes my attention whenever i have a spare moment when i would have been reading, plus with my new shop, i used to catch the bus home alone and get some reading in there but for the first time ever i have a bus buddy so my time i used to spend reading is rapidly reducing! Need to re-focus some other time then.. heres to 2012 x 2 years ago

scythianlingo#20 Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close - Jonathan Safran Foer

Well, I don’t think I’ll meet my goal once again this year. I was pretty close, though. I just had too many books that I /almost/ finished, but I just don’t feel right counting them. Maybe with my new Nook I received for Christmas I’ll be back on my game for the next year. (I read this one on my Nook) 2 years ago

pondicherry16) Harka - Liselotte Welskopf-Henrich

This was the first book I have ever read without pictures. It is the first book of six and tells the story of a Dakota chief. The author wanted the books to be more historically accurate compared to May’s books. I love them 2 years ago
