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.

Jolie NoggleI'm done,son!

final word count : 50,049
I still want to edit my story and tweak a few things.
So i may actually end up with a higher final word count.
(i seriously doubt i will CUT anything and end up with a lower number)
I just have a few finishing touches….but since i hit 50,000 i consider myself DONE!
It’s awesome that i finished 10 days early, especially since i got a late start. I am very proud of myself. Even though i probably won’t publish this book
But I will set a few goal for myself: publish a book” lmao :D 20 months ago

KellyFirst step complete - signing up!

I’ve signed up – and more importantly, i’ve told everyone about it, which should help me to keep going. Also written a scene by scene outline ready, though i’m still fleshing it out and getting to know my characters. 21 months ago

I managed to complete it on the very last day with about 1 hour to spare! I think it was worth it, for me, doing anything that increases my creativity is worth while but I definitely wouldn’t do it again. 2 years ago

lycaenideCrossed the 50k mark

Yay! On Saturday 26th November my wordcount reached 50,000, and I finsihed the month with a grand total of 53,840 words.

My novel is only half finished, so I will need to spend another month writing feverishly.

This is such an achievment, I have not sat down and written anything like this for years. And it is the first time I decided on a plan, and stuck with it. I did change little ideas as the story developed, but I didn’t achange my whole idea or start from scratch (which is what I have done with nearly every project in the last five years). So pleased! 2 years ago
