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.

Overdue update...

Hey guys, I have been here very little recently and I am truly sorry for that. As you know, after someone who was like a mother to me died last month, my life has changed in drastic ways and I’ve been trying to adjust. You may not know this but soon after the funeral my own mother ended up in the hospital with serious health issues and it continues on. I am like a train that has gotten derailed but am trying to get back on track. I know that things will work out in time but in the meantime things are pretty rough. I have had some nasty temptations recently (probably stress related) and yet, I am still standing. It is easy to use grief as an excuse to fail and I did use it as an excuse to eat too much ice cream lol, but not for this thanks be to God! At last, I will be staying home more, now that things have emotionally stabilized a bit with the family of the person who died. I have missed all of you very much and regretfully, I am unable to post when I’m not staying at home. And yet at the same time I don’t know how encouraging it is to have a person who has so much heartache try to cheer you up. Yet, it seems like you guys have been really struggling recently and I just hope that I will still be able to give you some encouragement in some small way. I partially blame myself for being away so long even though I don’t know if my words really help anyone. Regardless, I feel bad that I have been gone so long and again, I am sorry. I’d like to especially thank Deathtodesire for checking in on me and Mark Elder who private messaged me frequently to see how I was doing and to encourage me. I cannot express how much that meant to me because I didn’t know if anyone would even really notice I was gone. It is because of these two people that I have decided to push passed the heartache and return sooner than I thought I could. God bless all of you and may He keep you in His strength…
