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.

J PJournal App - iphone / ipad / mac

For anyone with a mac or iOS device, I highly recommend Day One. It uses Dropbox for syncing. This is really helpful to make writing more accessible and harder to lose. I can write something while out and not worry about keeping up with anything beyond what I already have on me.

After using it for most of this year, I finally got around to importing entries from another app that I hoped would improve the past couple years but has remained messy. 3 years ago

J PTrack Lessons Learned, Important Events

I’ve journaled somewhat regularly for the past 13 years.
I want to continue this and try to better capture important ongoings, stages, lessons in order to best learn and apply what I’ve seen and been through. 3 years ago

I have sooooooo much trouble with this. I bounce around from site to site. Hopefully, tumblrs here to stay (Probably not).

I want to set up a site, preferably private? Just so I don’t have to carry journal’s around. I have always had terrible luck with physical journals.

Hopefully, I can make this creative and fun. Photoshop maybe? 3 years ago

I always forget how therapeutic this can be for me. I usually only do this when I am feeling sad or frustrated, but I realize that doing it even when I am up, helps me to stay in aware of myself and my emotions. 3 years ago
