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.

Hmmm

Ok, So this is a little more difficult than what I had originally thought it would be. I’m still trying though, I do’t want to let them get the best of me!



I wonder

This one is a little deep for me. Its a congealed mess of emotions, and when you stop and think about it, you’re the one in control of it all. But how, you ask yourself, does one get over the feeling of betrayal, caused by those that you never thought would shaft you? I myself fon’t know, but I know that the longer you hold onto these feelings, the more you hold yourself back. I’ve been letting go, slowly,and over time, I can honestly say that I’m feeling better. I’m happier, thats forsure. The time that I spend worrying over what people are doing, what they’re saying, can be well spent elsewhere. I can’t truly say that I have let go completely, but let the healing begin. It’s only going to make us better and stronger, right? So for those hurt souls, the ones who spend lonely nights crying in your pillow, chin up. Somewhere, there’s someone waiting for you who’s going to make up for all the time you spent crying by making it their daily mission to see you smile. Love ya!
