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.

FaitherbeeThank-You Ebay and Freecycle

It’s a slow process but I’m working on this. I am so shocked when I unearth something I have not thought of or used in years, but the thought of giving it away brings up all these unresolved feelings!
I was a music major, but I dropped out of school three years ago without looking back. Now I am past the heartache of admitting publicly that I made a serious mistake about where to go with my future. Right? Well selling my instruments has been such a painful thing. I just want to foist them on the nearest person who will take them! Thank goodness for ebay. It allows for such cool detachment while selling your personal posessions. No more do we have to weep openly while people rummage through our beloved things and offer us less than a quarter of what we think it’s worth. Freecycle is even better, you just leave that junk out in front of the garage and sit down for dinner while people drag off that useless piece of your most intimate family memories.
So, thank you freecycle. And thankyou ebay. You are making the de-cluttering of my house so much less lucrative and yet so much less painful. 6 years ago
