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.

This was such a fantastic experience for me. It was a relief to get my feelings out in the open, even if it wasn’t what the other person wanted to hear. It saved my friendship and made me realise how much she does value me as a friend. She changed for the better and it means a lot to me.

I’m glad it worked out very well for you! Congratulations. We’re not all lucky to have such an understanding person to talk to but I can hope, right? :p

Good luck with all your goals!

Thank you, it was great to be able to comminicate with her instead of just talking.

I am lucky, I have few friends but they are all unique and great people. But TBH I’ve found that a lot of people here on 43T understand and “get” me better than people I know in the real world. I love sharing here!

I totally understand what you mean. :) I have a writers group online from all over the States and a few around the world and they get me more than my friends here. They understand some things that my friends don’t comprehend, even if they tried.

So yeah it’s great to share with different people. :D

ZombieFlesh has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
