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.

my life has been such that

i do understand so much more than i can ever write about or even put to words

why he has been so thoughtless...

i give him everything i can & ask for so little in return…when i do ask for something, it’s typically something that would mean so much to me (like the necklace his parents gave me…it’s very pretty, very simple, but means the world to me) instead he gives me things that mean nothing or that i could buy for myself & feel better about having it…he’s hurt me very deeply with this & i can’t even say anything because i don’t know exactly how to say it…i think he knows but i’m not sure.
it’s also been a crazy week at work & i know he thinks my tears are related to that, but i wouldn’t be so upset if he had at least given me something that meant something or at least showed he cares…
if he had given me something that wasn’t expensive but very meaningful, i would have been ecstatic…but he didn’t…he just threw some things in a gift bag, no tissue paper, no card, no effort, no thought, nothing…i feel so terrible inside & have a very hard time not crying about it
it’s not a good sign when more thought, love, and effort went into a gift from your in-laws than the one from your husband
