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.

Bitchiness all around by the two people who are great at it. There should be a bitchiness award for them and we should get to vote. I get it in person when trying to do my job and I get it by email. Why do women have to bring their emotional baggage to work and unpack it and leave the contents out for all to see?

I had yet another staff member yell at me

and this time it was over the phone and I asked her if she could settle down a bit because I’m just getting over the flu and she then ramped up the yelling. Un-effing believable. I said that I would prefer to discuss it as I’m not feeling well and needed to stay later tonight to finish some work and I even asked her if I could help her solve her problem and she said, or rather yelled “no.” Are women just not getting enough sex or are they just allowed to be bitches?

If you’re yelling at people at work and you’re reading this – please consider stopping. Because someone like me has to go home with the flu after working all day and not eating or drinking and then I have to take care of my family. And deal with real problems like a girl five years older than my daughter trying to hit her in the head with a shovel.
