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.

As a Phoenix Rising i'm so incredibly sad about the loss of 43T

Good Things About Today, 2012, The Year of Freedom (read all 359 entries…)
The Year of Freedom, day 137

1. One of the very first guys I dated after I moved here chatted with me tonight. We have always been ships in the night. With him moving to another state just after I moved here. then back. then moved again. always great to hear from him. it raised my spirits some.

2. a bit of an argument with my boss during staff meeting today. knowing how my performance review is always all about her and not about my entire year, but only the last few weeks i have managed to convince myself to zip my lip and nod politely during the review next week. after all, i already know she doesn’t listen. no need to actually talk, then is there? deciding to hunker down and nod politely is a very good thing. this doesn’t drive pay. it’s an exercise in…. politeness.


As a Phoenix Rising has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
