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.

SpatzAnd done!

I finally managed to delete all the emails I don’t need.
And I stopped a new email clutter project in the start – I had started to keep all the “xy liked your post” emails I got.
That was hard.

But I managed and now my email is shiny and perhaps I’ll be able to find something in there.

So: Yay! Success!

SpatzNext few folders

After deleting the subscriptions, the folders upon folders of companies I had ordered in the last few years are next.

I kept every email ever received on those orders. Don’t ask me why, I have no idea.

I deleted every one but the original order, that should be enough should I want or need the order number.

Only a few folders done, but it’s progress. More is to follow :-) 16 months ago

SpatzOh my

I just tried a new email application and in doing so I tried to find something in my gmail.

Now I wonder why I have so many emails – neatly filed away in dozen of tags but cluttering it nevertheless.

I checked a mail folder and I wonder why o why do I keep all those mails around?

I can’t remember.

So, I started with SW subscription and activation mails. Off to the garbage. I never check them anyway.

I hope to declutter the rest of my email in a few days… 16 months ago

It took about an hour and a half, but finally I’ve gotten rid of the literally hundreds of unread messages in my inbox. :) It feels good to have all that taken care of! 2 years ago
