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.

Feeling it today

there is a small annoyance that I need to put somewhere cause I don’t want to carry it any more. As all the craziness has and still is revealing itself there are things the ex did that just annoy me. Because of his mental illness(he does not see it as that) he takes things as he wishes with no regards to what it means to the other person. The example that is running through my head is there was a coin from a childhood memory I had. I had kept it in a box of little treasured memories. I had noticed it out by his things on the computer desk. I had mentioned to him at the time that I had one just like this and told him of my memory. He said there was a place like that near his house too. I thought nothing of it until I was packing, I looked in the little box and it was missing. Why on earth would you take something little like that, it meant nothing to him?!! I suppose someone with no conscious or felt remorse would…

When I was in Alaska, my apartment was broken into. The only thing that was taken that I cared about was a watch that had been my grandfather’s. It wasn’t a valuable nor expensive watch. It was the knowledge of it having once belonged to my then deceased Grandfather that made it valuable to me.

I’m sorry that your coin was taken, but he wasn’t able to steal your memory of it, just as my thieves didn’t steal the memory of my grandfather.

Hugs and much love, my friend.

the taking is not what is intended; more that having it meant he would remain close to you in your special memory of that item.
