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 2 entries…)

I’m only 21 , but I’ve sort of stopped believing in love .
I dated someone for 3 years and we were so serious and had our entire lives planned out , together .
When that went to hell I just sort of stopped believing .
I just want to believe in something again .


What you'll learn in love...

I wanted to comment on your post, because I’ve been in your spot a few times in my life. Thought I met the person I’d spend the rest of my life with, only to have my fantasy romance come crashing down. But the thing you just don’t realise yet, is that the relationships that don’t work out are meant to happen. They prepare you for the person you’re evolving to be, and prepare you for the person you are meant to end up with.

Here’s a blog I wrote on breakups and how they really are blessings in disguise…

Sending you light and love, from one stranger to another.


This actually means a lot , sometimes all you need is to hear someone tell you it’ll all be okay.

Breakups happen and I'm slowly starting to get that .. I've dated other people, and also realised the breakup was for the best and has made me grow , but sometimes I just feel like I'm growing to be with my first again .

I’m just hoping someday I’ll realise this is all just preparation for the right person !

Thanks (: I realllly enjoy your blog also !

Jessica .

Spencer Crews is thinking of you :)

Don't stop.

Do you believe in a happy ending?
Because I do believe.
If you are not happy right now, trust me, it is not yet the ending of your love story.
