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.

I said I was going to send postcards to people from England and I never got around to doing it. I did buy postcards, so I’ll spend some time this week filling them out and mailing them. 2 years ago

1. something for the Butt’s (you may know them better as Moonie, Hokey, Baby and Bitty)

2. something for TP

3. a very large box (26 pounds!) for my mom

4. something for my dad

5. a card to my uncle

12. something for SM

There was supposed to be a 13th item, but I forgot it at home. It will go in the mail tomorrow and I hope the recipient is very happy when they get it and will forgive me for my horrendous procrastination. If I can get my act together in time, there will be a 14th item that goes out tomorrow too. 3 years ago

I did this! Well I did the very specific goal that inspired this. So now on to the next thing… oh I did that too. Okay another thing… ship packages! That’s what I need to do that I’ve been saying for years that I’m going to do and haven’t done. For my next act I am going to ship packages. 3 years ago
