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.

Virtual Eavesdropping..

I’m not sure if we can call it that but I don’t know how else to put it. Background; I missed him very much, hated him for not reciprocating the feeling and out of curiosity as to how he is and what is happening in his life I opened his account and shamelessly snooped (I know I probably violated his privacy but by giving me his password didn’t he sort of give me an NOC, moreover we haven’t talked in three months and in my mind that alone justified my actions)
Well anyway I found out you’ve been having a real hard time and it has been going on for a while now and now that I know that I feel guilty for hating you all the while for not giving me time while you quietly suffered thousands of miles away. I feel bad for you, really bad but honestly that doesn’t justify not talking, you could have confided in me and would have found endless support yet you chose to ignore me like you always do..
Most days I feel sorry for myself but today its not that easy, today you’r giving me competition for my own sympathies. Today you make me want to forget all my notions of self-respect and pick up the phone and call you. Why, oh why do you have to make life that much harder for me?


Dia has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
