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.

I felt this goal, while really cool, turned into more of a chore. For some people I am sure this goal would be meaningful. My life is too hectic to include this. 2 years ago

Starting January 1, 2011, I took at least one new picture every day for the entire year. I posted the pictures on a blog and wrote about each photo. Most of the pictures somehow related to my life, but many of them were just cool things. It was extremely time consuming, but it was one of the most worthwhile, fun things I’ve ever done. 2 years ago

Planning to start this again to capture every single day of my 29th year on earth. I can’t believe I’m already turning 30 next year. Where has all that time gone?? My goal for this project is to become acutely, divinely aware of all the beauty and blessings around me—-which have gone unnoticed and sometimes unappreciated because of getting caught up with the little things. :) will be posting the blog name for this project soon. 3 years ago
