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.

Have finally been able to get the walls stripped of the hideous paper that has been plaguing me since I moved in. Many have tried in vain, but thanks to the serious cleverness and ridiculous stamina of one mate, they managed to get it all gone.. At last!!!

Now for the mammoth task of trying to figure out colour schemes. As it isn’t the largest of rooms (and neither is the separate toilet which I would like to match) I am thinking simple, subtle and hopefully stylish, possibly white and hints of black. 2 years ago

menettaIt's begun

I took the bull by the horns this afternoon or rather the wallpaper by the stripper and began ripping it from the walls. It is actually quite cathartic, progression is slow but am hoping if I keep motivated with loud music I can get it finished.

Here’s hoping! 3 years ago

tasha crowderkeeping it simple

I don’t have much money and I’m apartment living, so I’m keeping it simple. I want to stencil whiter white images on my walls and do accent striping (a slender one or two per wall) in a pale yellow. Then I’m hanging some harmonious pics and setting up plants in them that I rotate so they get to keep enough sun. Does it even sound like it’s going to be pretty? 3 years ago
