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.

Fall in love (read all 8 entries…)
Today I feel lucky to be single

As much as I know it’s not nice to be the one in love when the other person says they don’t feel the same…today I had to be the one who told someone else I didn’t return their feelings, and it’s awkward, and difficult, and you feel like a bad person, but at the end of the day, how can you have a relationship with someone just out of pity, or ‘to be nice’, or because you don’t want to hurt their feelings…no you can’t, it’s ridiculous, it will only end up having the opposite effect.

I’ve never had anyone be so dependent on me, it made me proud to be able to provide a crutch for him in the beginning…but that’s not equality or even normality…it’s a short term fix.

Bring me no complications, bring me fun and care-free, bring me genuine and confident.

please :)
