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 shugo chara guardians (read all 16 entries…)

Hello everyone, this is probably my last post. I’ve come to a realization that I don’t need my charas, I have multiple sides to me that I just don’t show. I already know who I am inside and I’m working on showing my true self. I’m going to say I completed this goal just because I want to keep all of my entries and because I feel like I did complete it in a way, I found myself, just not my charas. So good luck everyone, goodbye.

find the remaining lost princesses (read all 6 entries…)

This is no longer a goal of mine but I will say I’ve completed it for reasons that I’ve said in another entry on a different goal. Goodbye everyone.

My Realization

I’ve found out a lot of things lately and realized a lot too. I’m not doing anything related to magical creatures anymore. At first I was wanting it for all the wrong reasons, I wanted to become a magical creature to get away from my problems. And when I found out I was from the other dimension, it just made me so happy to know there was another place out there that could be like my escape. But it’s not going to be an escape…it’s just like another place where drama and horrible people exist. Then I recently found out that it was all a mistake (sort of) and that I really belong somewhere else. But I’m nothing special, I’m just a normal girl. Not a magical creature, not a princess, just normal me. Just the way I like it. Instead of deleting this goal permanently, I’m going to say I completed it because I want to keep all my previous entries and I feel like I’ve wanted this for so long and now I finally found out what I’m supposed to do in life so I have completed in in a sense. I’ll still be roaming around here to talk to you guys but this is no longer a goal of mine. I can’t believe after over 2 years of being on this goal that this would be the way I stopped it. But I’m happy still. Good luck to everyone!
