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.

write a poem
its only my 2nd attempt But...

Here it is I hope you like it, Being only my 2nd poem I fel wuite chuffed with the way it come out, esp as I qalways have trouble expresing myself, because i waffle on, and dont say what i mean to blah blah. So hre it is. any comments are appreciated.
I don’t know whats going on,or whats about to start,
Can you hear me crying quietly, I’m re-living this wounded heart.
It’s all coming back, i remember it all so clear,
But this memory, it frightens me, makes me live in fear.

Why did you just say that, whats it all about?
All these questions and confusion i could really do without.
All i want to do is ask questions, and take it back to square one,
But I know that’s not a good idea, coz i know where it started from.

I’ve never hated you, just been scared for you,
I wasn’t sure if you would make it through.
How you act on threats is never a good sign, One day I’m scared you wont even say good bye.
I Couldn’t live without you, no matter the pain,
If you left like this, I’d feel I was to blame.
Could’ve done more, to save the worry
I should have been stonger, i’m real sorry.

But the air is cleared, in a different way,
Did you learn from the past,Listen to what we had to say?
I’m so proud of you, the way you held it together,
I didnt like what you said, but you acted alot better.

I’m glad we’ve come this far, and you’ve prooved to them,
That you listened and learned, and it didnt happen again.
It’s the first step and I believe in you,
All you need to do is believe in yourself too.


good good

It’s not the type of writing I’m used to taking interest in, but it’s pretty good. For a second attempt it’s actually really well done. Keep them coming. [:

btw, [see picture] no point it; I like it, is all.

Cheers mate done a few more since this but here is my latest..slightly different please let me know what your thoughts are though

It’s time.
Your Back.
To the way you used to be.

I can’t.
see why.
You Wont.
Just let it slide, theres nothing between you and me.

It’s not your fault,
It’s the way you are,
But I think you like it though,
To have someone new to scar.
Like you’ve been hurt,
But take it out on me,
Your weakness,
Is you don’t listen to anyone about anything.

And that’s what drives me insaine,
And you know it. Which doubles up my pain,
I can’t believe you. You make me mad
But your my best friend. And.
I’m hear to listen. And.
Try my best to help you through.

Even though I don’t know why,
A force is pulling down my mind,
I don’t believe your lieing,
You not even good at trying,
To hide the fact, That.

I’ve come to.
Learn you,
Don’t care about me.
But I know, you wont admit that your not stable mentally.


I know that.
That you don’t Care.
About me but.
I’ll no longer feel the hurt and pain,
Of your bitter tounge, spite and shame.
