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.

simplylivingWhat a great feeling!

I am so happy I decided to do this. It feels so good to get rid of more stuff that I don’t need and to give it to someone who will appreciate it! 6 years ago

simplylivingNext week

So, next week I am going to another city for some work training. Here I will release my very first bookcrossing book into the wild. I am so excited, yet nervous. I don’t understand why I am so attached to my books. Oh well, at least I picked one that I know I won’t miss! 6 years ago

pinupHarder than I Thought

I thought this would be an easy goal, but I was wrong. I didn’t think I was so attached to the books in my home. It’s not like I read all of them. I think it’s because I’m not certain what will happen once I release it. Even if I send it to someone instead of at a public spot, that person may keep it instead of passing it on. 6 years ago

davewasthereYey! Released my first book!

Admittedly it was Dan Brown book, Deception point but I’ve finally done it. Released a book into the wild for someone else to enjoy.

Another 43T goal to tick as completed. I love it! 8 years ago

davewasthereWell, I've finally joined bookcrossing... I just have to actually part with a book.

It’s like tearing out some of my soul though. I mean, if it was anything else, like my first born, my collection of travel adapters, the greek grapa that has been sitting in my cupboard for three years, photos of my ex… it would be easier to leave that for a stranger to enjoy than one of my precious books!

I have to do this though. Just to get the ball rolling… 8 years ago
