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.

Find a way to be free and be with him at the same time
Sometimes I wonder why people fear of being single?

I didn’t have a boyfriend for quite a long time and it really didn’t bother me unlike most of my friends. And then it just happened, I found someone and my life turned upside down. And it was a fairytale… at first, but then I realised how much I gave up to be with him. I need freedom, peace and independence and to be honest he is suffocating me sometimes. But I grew too fond of him, and I am unable to leave him, because no matter how much of a childish, irresponsible, stubborn idiot he is, I love him.
So I have to find a way to be myself and be with him.
It should be an easy task if he loves me as much as he says.
Well, only time will tell.

Apologize to you

Hi, guys!
I know I haven’t been around lately, but still you have been cheering and supporting me. Thank you for been here for me and I am sorry for not doing the same for you. :)
