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 3 entries…)
Just when you think you have it.

Gahhhd. I’m just frustrated with this goal. I would personally challenge myself to do it, but I don’t really want to “challenge” myself to fall in love. I want it to be a nice, natural feeling. The problem is that everytime I think I find someone that I could possibly date in the near future they almost ALWAYS have a girlfriend! I don’t know why, but I seem to attract men like that into my life. I’m not old enough to go to bars to meet anyone knew, and with college, it’s like, all these guys I’ve been meeting have hidden women in their lives.

I guess it’s good on their part. They have the qualities that more than one person is interested in. It just sucks for me, I guess.



Hang in there

My ex was dating someone else when we met but so was I. We became lunch buddies and got to know each other a little. When he heard I was dumped, he freed himself up so that we could date. Keep looking for a good guy but the friends you make in life are what get you through and one may turn out to be the one or introduce you to him.
