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.

Moving on is hard to do

What advice can you give on what I can do, to cheer myself up/deal with this? It’s nearly a year since I met my last ex (even though we split up last October). I’m still getting over it all (every situation is different, some people are over their ex straight away, others can take months, and each ex is different too).

If you’re not over an ex, and it comes up to a date, either the date you met, or the date they left you or whatever, and you think of them because of this… how do you cheer yourself up/distract yourself? Also I’m not going to make myself not think about it at all, I don’t want to completely dwell on it in-fact I’d like to make it positive, but it’s a process and just not thinking about it hasn’t worked completely, I go longer without thinking about him than I did at the start, but I still do now and again, even though there’s absolutely no contact now or anything.

A few weeks ago

I made something (a foil art thing) as part of a website swap thing I was doing. I also did another just for fun. They were art things we got with art magazines, which we’ve had for ages.

So...

I haven’t been working on this until rececntly. For me learning is best when it’s fun and fairly easy. I found a site (on a goal on here, actually) called Duolingo which I’ve started using and it’s great.
