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.

that didn’t work out so well. So today I will write that I am sensitive to the feelings of others.

I kind of think

that this mean person comes out suspiciously at certain times of the month than at other times. I am trying to look at myself in a way that shows love for myself. I am going to begin writing at least one good thing about myself each time I come on here.

I try.

I really do try to do this. I (maybe) have gotten better at this. I don’t tell myself I’m stupid but I still tell myself that I’m fat and ugly.

lose the negative

Sometimes I am so annoyed with myself how often I speak negatively. I am Miss Positive with other people around me but somehow when it comes to myself I say all these negative, downer things. I really do want to do better with this.
