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.

LJ is too difficult

I tried in vain to do something nice with my Live journal layout but it’s just too hard. So I’ve given up and I’ve resorted to starting up my blogger account and re-vamping that.

I gave it a new name and a new layout. I think I’ve done rather well. I’ve even set myself the challenge of blogging on it every day for 40 days. I’ve got 25 days to go!

My blog url is: http://citrusrage.blogspot.com/

It would be great if you could add yourself as a follower if you like it.

I have a blog, I don’t write in it very often but I think I should as I like getting things off my chest in an anonymous way. I’m quite a private person when it comes to face to face communication. I think it’s largely because I’m shy in nature and I find talking to people quite a hard task sometimes. I think I’m scared of how I appear to people. I don’t consider myself to be outwardly pretty, I hardly look like a super model especially considering I’m overweight.

However being on the net and talking to people via type and them not knowing about all the physical aspects that I think people are put off by (no matter how shallow they say they aren’t) looking at me on face value. I can shed all of those when I’m online. I’m simply the inner me. The me that people would see if they ignored my cover and the insecurities I have about it. I met my partner online just over 2 years ago. We didn’t see what each other looked like for at least the first 3 weeks to a month of our relationship. It might sound odd but I actually think it made us stronger. We were more bothered about what each other thought and felt and cared about rather than how big their ears were or if they were a Brad Pitt lookalike.

Anyways rambling aside. I’ve sort of made myself a mid year resolution. Try and write in your blog at least once a week about something random. I don’t write in it much now because I don’t feel I have the time but I reckon that it does me so much good when I do write in it that maybe it might not kill me to have some little therapy sessions each week. I also think I need to doll it up a little. It looks a bit boring set on default so I’m going to make my own layout. I know roughly how things like HTML work and I dabble in photoshop so I hope I can come up with something not too shabby.
