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.

Stop cutting (read all 9 entries…)

i havent cut for very long, just like a month or two but i really want to stop. im always wearing sweatshirts, which is okay for now becuase its still really cold out… but i dont know what im going to do when warm weather gets here…
at a school dance recently, even though i was dying of heat exaustion, i wouldn’t take my sweatshirt off and when my friend tryed to take it off for me i started freaking out.
the only person that knows is my best friend. she promised she wouldn’t tell anyone if i promised to stop. i’ve probably broken that promise atleast 10 times now. but i really want to stop.
im thinking of going to counceling at my school… i just hope that they dont tell parents because i know my mom would freak and feel so guilty and i would feel horrible. i know i have to tell her i just need sometime.
i hate it. i cut when i feel stupid or frusterated or angery… it just kinda slips… but im really making an effort now.


you can do it. be strong lass.
