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.

love my boyfriend
i love my boyfriend.

jacob and i met about five years ago. i was just a young teenager and he was dating some girl. we hit it off right away. i never thought of him as nothing more than a friend and he thought the same way as me. we talked through email whenever we got the chance. he is such a smart ass and he is always threatening to beat me at something. he doesn’t like to lose and neither do i. i loved how how matter how long it’s been since we last talked…we talked to eachother like it was just yesterday. :D we have been together for over nine months. we will be together for a full year on decemeber fifth. the day after his birthday. i couldn’t love anyone as much i love this man. we have been through so much and we are never broken. we lean on eachohter when we need too and we hold the other one up. i am so happy and so in love with my boyfriend. he is the sun to my gloomy days. <3
