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 am 60 years old and have been living with my sister, her son, his friends and her play daughter for over 15 yrs. when i worked i paid half the bills treated every kid in my life just as i would my nephew. I was forced to retire in 2009 and was given severance pay and my 401k money which because my family wanted to move to Georgia i did also since i did not want to be alone. I spent all my money going there. Sent money for a house which i only saw pictures of but we made the best of it. My question is since my money ran out last year everytime something goes wrong my sister threatens to leave what should i do? Should i leave since at this point i am waiting for my disablity and it isn’t even close. I do not even have a hearing date. I get so tired of feeling like i do not matter.
