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.

Craft a jar of compliments (read all 5 entries…)
not exactly

done in love, but I did it. I ordered rose petals. The most affordable and decent looking ones were scented, so here’s fervently hoping they smell nice and not overpoweringly well overpowering! lol
Worst case, I can give them away or make a craft with them for someone or something or the other. And get different ones.

But I think in an effort to honor this goal, I need to start this now. Before said little petals arrive. I don’t care if they are strips of junk mail or words cut out of newspapers. I may not have much around to start with, but I had better start if I hope to keep what little I have left of me right now!

and now I’d really better go take that nap. Loss has moved through discouragement, sadness, frustration, exasperation, giving up, and now to anger. lol

running to my dreams to give me strength to live my day,
~ cf

hey, we can’t all be stellar all the time, right?


buffalosnowangel P.S. I love you all.

go cf!

I love this goal, and can’t wait to read more on it. Based on the number of people joining you, I’d say you can add inspirational, trend setting and empowering to your jar!

I almost missed this somehow...

wonder what’s up with the notifications. As I looked at what you wrote, I thought “empowering? really?!” big smile. :D

thanks, E!! I don’t suppose we could persuade you to join us? No pressure, but there’s plenty of space for your jar too on our shelf of friendship. :) I think you’d be surprised at how much it helps. I know I am. With being beaten down so much by others around me right now, this is something I need. If these things are true, then the truth sets you free, right? I don’t want to stay near abuse forever, but while I find a way out, I think this is one thing that will help me. I hope so!

Just know there’s a bunch of us here that would be more than willing to help you start your jar. ;)

buffalosnowangel P.S. I love you all.

I'll think about it!

It’s a tempting thought.
