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’s all i must do when around the situation. i mentioned my liking to write poetry and songs and music, and magically she likes the same the day after. it hurts me that i cant truly be me anymore for fear of it being taken away and copied, but i will try, i think maybe i should start seeing the positive side. but i’m in a dark place concerning this person right now, so maybe in a few days i’ll be looking objectively at how to help the situation! i mean, things cant get anymore complicated… great, now that i’ve said that, it will!! i must go succumb to sleep. i am its slave! another update soon i promise/and-or/hope! hope goals are achieved in my absence!

friends

things have happened. insults whispered and feelings hurt. and all of this has crippled the strongest of friendships. i have been so fueled with anger and been so hurt that i havent been able to see the damage done. but i can now see all thats wrong so im going to try. if she says something, i’ll let it go; if someone betrays me, they’re not worth my time; if she apologises, i’ll accept it; if i must apologise, i will. and i just hope that pretty soon i’ll be over the stress and the drama, and be able to move this to things i’ve done
:)
