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.

have friends
hugs all around

Everyone says Im a nice person and friendly and all that stuff. But no one wants to be my friend and if they do they just either use me or don’t care about me. Im lonley most of the time and people forget about me I havent gotten a hug or even I love you in months from anybody and everytime I try to reach out I just get an Oh hey how are you and never here from them again. Even my best friend of 5 years has stop talking to me for about two months now. Dont know why though. I need consistency and people in my life that really care and that really love me. Hugs to all those who feel like I do.

Get over a guy (read all 2 entries…)
A little sad

Thinking about him a little. A little upset but I know I can get over and get through.

Find a cure for aids

I know a few people including family members that are battling the HIV/AIDS Disease and its heartbreaking to know that there is no cure for it. I would personally like to discover the cure or at least in my lifetime know that there is a cure. The only vaccine to prevent it right now is just taking precautionary measures in your everyday life.
