We got three more cards out on Christmas Eve.
43/43 6 months ago
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.

This goal would have been completed ages ago if I’d ever remember to post to it.
37/43: A Christmas card to England
Hoping to get the rest of our Christmas cards out on Monday. 7 months ago
I sent Flat Stanley back during our vacation and earlier this week I sent a letter, forms and pictures to Marcus.
If I were better at keeping track of what I send, I’d probably have already reached 43 by now.2 years ago
I’ve sent three boxes to my mom this month.
At the end of last month I sent something to a friend of a relative. (And in return, her son sent me Flat Stanley! Don’t really know what to do with him, though…)

Well… Christmas time made this goal fly by.
I haven’t been keeping track on this goal, but at least 7 of the things I mailed today should count.

I still haven’t sent the postcards! But I received one from a fellow 43t’er today, so that has lit the fire under my butt and I plan on writing them this weekend. 2 years ago
Ten invites to K’s birthday party.
I still haven’t started on the postcards, but I haven’t forgotten. They’re on my kitchen table with pens and stamps nearby. 3 years ago
My apologies to the few of you that want postcards. I’m a procrastinator and I haven’t written or mailed the cards yet. I do have one picked out for each person that wanted one, so that’s the first step. I’ll try to get them in the mail by the end of the week. 3 years ago
I need to get a postcard in the mail to LGS. Would anyone else like one? 3 years ago
