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.

Success Possible???

Ok so I emailed him and guess what??? I got a response! It seemed like an interested response(could just be me though!!) and he gave me his new email!! He also was MORE than happy to be listed on my references (if he only knew!!) and asked all about my summer, what I was reading, how my kids were!!! He also said he admired me for all the hard work I had done. Did I mention I LOVE this man…..ahhhhhh I’m back on the boat I guess!

Saddest Day of Defeat

Well…the man I have idolized since 1997 is gone and I am sad to say I never had oppurtunity to say goodbye. I am devastated….: ( I will send him an email expressing my thoughts, feelings, and gratitude for all he’s done for me and hope that one day I run across him in NY ( not friggin likely but “Hope springs eternal”!) Anyway…...I’m beaten on this and I just want to cry!

Heart Broken

I have some devastating news…..the Proffesor I have loved since 1997 is leaving and taking a job in New York! I can’t believe it! I am absolutely devastated…no but seriously I have to let him know how important he was to me! He played a big part in my descision to major in English and I can’t bear the thought of him being so far away! My chance is slipping away…(as if I had one!) Oh well….maybe he’ll be overwhelmed with passion when I make it back on campus! One can only hope!

Not looking good so far

It’s not looking good so far guys…..I haven’t even seen him this term…which is a travesty of the utmost proportions. But that’s ok, the awe and passion he inspired lives on…..All I need is one chance though…just one! Oh well I’ll keep dreaming!

The Teacher All the Girls Dream About....

Naw, seriously though! This teacher could truly be called an inspiration! He stimulates my mind and ….well I’ve decided to become a teacher anyway…Thanks to him I’ve decided to do something that’s important to me and well, the affair part would just be cake!
