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.

Random Musings III

I just love writing but I don’t feel like I’m really any good. Here, I feel like it’s alright to share because it feels annonymous. Here are some other random thoughts. Many have been collected since Christmas

- Your struggle has become my waiting game. I can’t move from this spot. I don’t want to think of you because I need you so much, it hurts.

- Even with you miles away I leave your side vacant awaiting your return.

-These feelings aren’t simple yet feel pure. They feel like they never existed before you.

-I love you more than all the stars in the sky. When I think of happiness, I see your face. When I think of love, I see your face.

-It’s so easy to be me around you. Not a word leaves my mouth do I regret or edit with you.

-To be loved, pure and true, without pride or prejudice is a gift. One so rare and needed,. I have only felt it if only for a moment. It lasts a lifetime.

- You feel like home to me, where I belong. (that goes out to a friend I saw at Christmas)


RM has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.
