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.

Deirdre Saoirse MoenShipped an entire tote's worth yesterday

Some fabulous yarn, and yes, I’m sorry to see it go, but glad to know that someone will Make Something Out Of It.

I haven’t listed any new yarns since the move, but I’m hoping to any day now. 8 years ago

Deirdre Saoirse MoenFinally getting started on this again

I wrote a little app to make data entry easier. It’s not very complete, but it’s so much more fun. (and it should be fun, right?)

And, when I reorganized the room recently, I found my camera. So is coming back to life. 8 years ago

Deirdre Saoirse MoenWhere's my camera?

I’ve misplaced the darn thing, so that’s interfering with my completing this goal. 8 years ago

Deirdre Saoirse MoenI have Sooo much!

Approximately sixty totes worth—each tote holding 50-70 skeins of yarn.

Yep, I had a yarn acquisition issue.

In many cases, I don’t even know what I bought it FOR. 8 years ago
