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.

I feel like this has been acomplished

Especially since my boyfriend and I broke up. I’ve been spending a ton of time with people that I’ve really missed being around and I realize how important they are to me. I feel horrible for being MIA for so long, but now I’m back and I’m so happy!

Dad's coming this weekend

I haven’t seen him for months, honestly it was before Christmas but I’m not sure exactly when. The only bad part is that he still doesn’t know that my boyfriend and I split up and I know he’s going to ask me a ton of questions that I really don’t want to deal with or talk about right now. I’m still looking forward to seeing him though.

My mom is coming into town on Saturday

We’re going to hang out for a bit and probably have lunch together. I haven’t seen her since Christmas, so it will be fun. The bad part is that I might have to stay in the house and wait around for Best Buy to deliver my new washer and dryer. I scheduled my delivery before I knew that mom was coming, and now I won’t know exactly what time they are coming until tomorrow afternoon so it’s hard to try and make any plans.

more time

It’s hard because all of my family is out of state, but I’d like to try to see them just a little bit more than I have been. My friends will be a lot easier because most of them are close!
