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.

be respected by my sons
I know this sounds silly and conceited by I don't mean it to be

I raised my sons the best that I could after each of my marriages failed. What hurts now is that they don’t really know me as a healthy soul, since I was depressed or manic or frantic and struggling a lot of their young lives. They saw me complete my BS and recover after divorces, but I made such bad choices with men that I know they suffered. I didn’t know how to parent teenage boys alone, and as a single mother I learned quickly that their adoring relationship with me would end at 15. I love them more than they will ever know and I am trying so hard to be an adult with my adult kids who are now struggling with their own relationships. 20 and 30. I am even a grandma since 1998 and have no relationship at all with my grandchild and a new one who is possibly mine.
