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.

Feels like I'm not any closer

Grew up with my grandparents saying “Don’t upset your mother”. Whatever ocd and other problems she has, she’s had “a break” from facing reality and for years. And it hasn’t done any of us any good.

Keep seeing those Tron commericals

and it cracks me up. Maybe it’s a sign.

Man, it's so hard to have a regular conversation with her

let alone one that could end with the phone clicking in my ear. It’s building though, I’m almost there. I feel like that painful bud ready to burst.

This has been...

an odd mystery in my life. Kinda feels like a movie. The unknown though, I believe, and her holding onto a “secret” has brought too much drama underlying in our lives.
