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.

cleanskiesDecember - Christmas cocktails, Christmas fondue, art in London

December is a month so dense with social obligation it can be hard to take time out for yourself, but this month was good; a party, friends round for fondue on Christmas eve, and a day out traipsing around London looking at art. Fun. 2 years ago

cleanskiesNovember - the month of book launches

Actually, this got pretty exciting. Thought Bubble was probably the acme of the month—very thrilling to be published. It was work, but good work. 2 years ago

cleanskiesOctober -- Halloween Party and lunch at Jamie's

Another month of hard work and deadlines; however half term week included some stupidly expensive meals, a trip to the V&A (for postmodernism) and Science Museum (for Oramics) and a proper halloween party so all good. 3 years ago

cleanskiesSeptember - a bust

I did go to visit my sister, but that was obligation, work. A trip to London to see Ellen and buy comics. I did go shopping in London with Tim, but it was more an exhausted breath in a frantic month that a thing to look forward too. 3 years ago

cleanskiesAugust - Fail

I did go to Bath on the spur of the moment, but that’s not a thing to look forward to. In retrospect I should have done something without T as he scheduled a gig on every weekend and wouldn’t agree to do anything with time off apart from remodel the kitchen. Result was no remodelled kitchen or fun. bah. 3 years ago
