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.

girlwitglassesEasier than I thought

I quit Facebook cold turkey. I deactivated my acct back in June of this yr. I have logged back on a few times recently because some of my friends wanted me to check out their vacation pics, etc. I feel like I have no need to be on there anymore and I like it. I k.i.t with people I want via phone. 14 months ago

Ah, Facebook is exhausting. I can never resist posting a controversial article or getting into a debate with a stranger. I just deleted it. I have so much work to do and it doesn’t make sense to be checking facebook a hundred times a day. 21 months ago

NB2010This is such %$$# addition.

I don’t know what my problem is. I am not able to go cold turkey i.e. avoid facebook for at least one week straight. The world is not going to come fall apart really. 21 months ago

mhawkinsstaying facebook free...

happy to report that this goal has remained at the top of my keeping list – it’s almost hard to believe how much more time I have available since I’ve not been getting on fb… hoping to remain fb free :) 23 months ago

mhawkinsgreat progress!

I’m making great progress with this one!! Last night we were at a friend’s house for a New Year’s gathering. Several of my friends said, “Have you heard about so-and-so?”... or “Did you see that picture of…..”

and I’m like, “nope…. one of my goals is to facebook less” (now of course I did go ahead and take a peek on their phones to see and stay in the conversation).... but it really feels freeing not to have to think that I MUST check it every day (or several times a day) 1 year ago

mhawkinsimprovement! :)

even with the holiday season, I’m really doing much better with this goal! I still glance at facebook a time or two most days, but haven’t gotten “sucked in” for long periods like I did before… and I’m definitely being more productive… hoping I will keep this trend going 1 year ago
