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.

Julie HorstIt was scary and fun!

It was quite a hill, and I came down very fast, and was grateful to have a friend at the bottom of the hill to keep me from rolling into a tree or boulder or something. 12 months ago

Julie HorstWell well.

I went to Office Max yesterday with the intent of buying the bubble wrap, and the cheapest I could get enough to sufficiently cover me was $10…..I didn’t buy it. It seemed like a dumb way to spend $10. I work a whole hour for that. So I suppose this goal is on hold until I just run into a bunch of free bubble wrap, which could absolutely happen. I got a desk and a nice rolling office chair and a poster frame for free yesterday. I should’ve bought the bubble wrap and told myself the desk and chair were $10. ;) 19 months ago

Julie HorstI do crazy sh*t on a daily basis.

But I haven’t managed this yet. My kitchen is covered in a fine layer of popcorn, there’s a bottle of gin nestled in the light fixture, but bubble wrap? I got none. 2 years ago

Julie HorstRolled (or attempted to roll) down a hill recently.

No bubble wrap around, or this goal would be DONE but….fun times, anyway. 3 years ago
