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.

100 Things that make me smile / happy / feel good (43things)
1. Waking up naturally without an alarm and feeling rested
2. The pets showing me affection, especially Hoover and Charlin (NOTE 5/8/2011 – both Hoover and Charlin have passed away; AND I still feel happiness when interacting with all our pets)
3. a fresh manicure
5. freshly cleaned clothes (5/8/2011)
6. discovering new words (5/8/2011)
7. making new friends, especially when totally unexpected (e.g. Rebecca 5/15/2011)
8. energetic feeling after functional fitness class
9. shopping (but why?)—and only when for recreational purposes and I am not rushed AND store has appealing music playing
10. cleaning up a mess that has been bothering me – feel good after it’s done, not so much doing it
11. seeing a kitten see a person for the first time
12. discovering music new to me , especially at live concerts
13. watching a mother cat teach her kittens; e.g. how to climb a tree (Dec 2013)
