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.

All She Wrote by Ross Copperman

She wanders all alone
This is all, she’s ever really known
A stranger in her skin
Nothing more, it’s all she’s ever been
She spills these words across the page
It helps to ease the pain, and she cries

Nobody out there
Wants to understand
Nobody out there
Takes me as I am
I’m feeling alone here
I know there’s got to be
Somebody somewhere
That’s all she wrote

She always feels so small
Pushed aside, a flower on the wall
They never ask her name
No one sees, the girl without a face
She spills these words across the page
It helps to ease the pain, and she cries

Nobody out there
Wants to understand
Nobody out there
Takes me as I am
I’m feeling alone here
I know there’s got to be
Somebody somewhere
That’s all she wrote

Her great escape
She found her place
And she’s never gonna be the same
It’s beautiful
Cause now she knows

There’s somebody out there
Who wants to understand
There’s somebody out there
Who takes me as I am
I’m feeling at home here
I knew there had to be
Somebody somewhere
