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.

remember my brother's life instead of his death.
i haven't accepted it yet and i don't want to

the darkest day i’ve ever been apart of was on May 19, 2007. my world was shattered when i heard the news about my brother while i was 8 months pregnant. to this day, i have not accepted this and i refuse to, i keep thinking he’s coming back, he means the world to me and my mom and my daughter will never know him, it kills me because we have so many thing to do still, so many laughs, so many moments we haven’t shared yet. i’ll never see him old, never see him as a father, an uncle, everything stopped that day. until recently, i haven’t smiled, my husband says that i’m a walking zombie, it’s for him that i’m trying to smile again but in my heart i feel like i went with him that day.

Loss of a brother

I definately can feel for anyone who has lost a brother. My younger brother committed suicide in 2008. I found him that morning at around 1:00am. It was definately the absolute worst day of my life. I am here for you, I mourn with you, & I cheer for you. For your loss, your life & your smile.
