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 was doing incredibly well

with hanging out with friends, but now my parents are cracking down. I can’t do anything on the weekends until I’ve finished all my homework. That means all of it. I guess it makes sense, until I want to do something friday with a completely free saturday. Also, my school is like a university for high schoolers, so I have a bunch of homework (right now we’re reading a Tale of Two Cities in English, so I have to read 40 pages tonight). I’m sorry; rereading my entry, I look like a whiney little brat, but I just had to vent…

School starting up again...

On Monday. I guess that’s good because I’ve been pretty sedentary. I’ve hung out with a couple friends since my last post, but not much else. My church really helps with this too, and we’re having a youth kickoff on sunday!! I can’t wait!!

Going places!!

Finally I’ve got a full weekend!! First I’m going to a sleepover, and then like an hour after that (tomorrow) I get to go to Starbuks with a friend. On Sunday I have church, and on Monday (which isn’t the weekend, but I’m still excited) one of my best friends is getting back from New York and we’re going shopping and getting ournails done. I haven’t met anyone new in the process of anticipating these events, but I’m getting less introverted. I have to make more contact with current friends before I meet new ones!!
