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.

find a new job
I gave notice to quit and my last day will be Thurs Sept 25

the state fair starts Friday Sept 26 so I might do another blog on that this year. Have not decided.

Looking for jobs every day. Thinking of cleaning homes in my neighborhood to make a little pocket money

find at least one thing each day that makes me happy and record it everyday for a year

I think this is going to be my project for 2015. I’ll get a really pretty journal and start on New Years day :)

I haven’t got that message .. I have had it in the past .. what I have noticed is people I haven’t spoke with in private messages haven’t got the message tab .. don’t know if I can still message those where it says open conversation or if they can message me .. and also I am not seeing comments of one I am subscribed to showing in my sub feed ..

Hang out here till the lights go out.

HULLO ABS!!! — 3 weeks ago

I know what you mean…it’s getting harder and harder not to leap to negative conclusions about the Robots and their thinking around this place (and us)!

Grand to be back stalking the old corridors with you :-)
