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.

How to cut my wrists


NW2301 just spent an hour typing a "How I did it" and it got deleted. >=[

I cheer...

to show my support. Thank you for your courage to stop the cutting and for taking the time to write about it. It means the world to me.

cuting hurts like hell you must have been in alot of pain to do so….....
the decision to not do it takes alot…..
wish i had your courage…....

umm well I found you someone I can finally relate to. I’ve been hospitalized for cutting, burning and over dosing. And I went almost a year without all of that until tonight. And I know how hard it is to stop. But once you start again it’s so hard to stop. That’s why I’m alittle worried. But thank you. It would be nice to have someone to talk to about this :-)

Just remember you’re not alone. I know I’m over a year late to comment, but you have my support, and you could talk to me, if you want ( ..I’ve cut, burnt, tattoed, and starved myself. I have over 100 scars on my body from self mutilation.
