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.

Deep Breath...

Okay, so I leave tomorrow for a little R&R and am needing a little encouragement. Everyone keeps telling me I look great (better than I did) but when I look in the mirror all I see is an obese 5’0” tall girl. I’m working really hard but we all know how it is when we start getting down on ourselves…Sigh I just hate going home and having to face my thin mom, my thin aunts, and my thin cousins…I’m the only heavy one!! YUK. Alright guys, good luck to all of you, keep on going, and help me along…:o)


I know how that feels...

I am the only chunky one out of all my friends so I know what you mean. Just keep chugging forward and don’t look back! They look like they do, and you look like you do.

(and as far as standing in the mirror, thats the worst. However heres my tip to you, when you’re feeling down about what you look like, put on the outfit that looks best on you and do up your hair and make-up and then look in the mirror and admire how cute you really are!)
