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 have done some talking with soemone that is very important to me. I opened up a lot and that is soemthing I have never done before. At the same time it was like a weight being lifted off of my shoulders. Everything I have been holding in for so many years and all it took was a conversation. And I actually slept a whole night without waking up. I knwo there is more that needs to be done before I have total closer but this was a huge step.

My 1st Big Test

My ex husband called tonight. He told me how much he loves me and wants me back. There will always be a part of me that loves him…..for who he was not who he became. Am I stong enough to let go and not give in? I know myself. If after a month, I can still walk away from him as I am now…..then I am done. Update to follow in February.
