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.

Ink0PennWorking on it

Keeping a proper day to day journal and writing down everything that happened is tedious and time-consuming and the main reason why I give up on it every time.
Hence, this time I’ll build up to it slowly.
I’m working on the goal of finding at least one thing to make me happy every day and recording it. Keeping up with it is the first step towards journal keeping. 2 weeks ago

rolyKeep a journal

i believe that keeping a journal is a great way to:
- write memories so that i can enjoy reading my past in the future
- think about what i’m doing
- be grateful about the things that go well in my life
- write down the issues that i’m wanting to work on
- write down the goals i would like to achieve

i do write sometimes, mostly when i’m not feeling happy, but feel like i shoud.

i should write more often. 1 month ago

rrwletting go of journalling

As a senior citizen, I have decided to let go of writing down my feelings and ideas. I’ll just let them float through my head.

A while ago, I stopped doing my LifeJournal (omputer program with privacy and good prompts and formats). I deleted all of it from my computer.

I have a pile of journals, going back to high school. I’m making a new goal to shred my journals, with or without reading them. 2 months ago

Well back in December 2011 I started a journal and keep up with it pretty regularly. The web site is called Penzu and I really like it. I write most every work day. I usually have a few minutes every day to write an entry, and even sometimes from home. It lets me vent my feelings, thoughts and frustrations. I find it very therapeutic. Highly recommend it! 3 months ago
