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.

have a funeral for my relationship with my ex
The Ex-Box

I saw the entry about the funeral for a relationship and I called all my girlfriends to come over. When they got here I gathered all my old pictures and memories and put them in a show box! Then I read a breakup letter that I had written two months ago and never gave him…We decorated the box and lit candles and after I went through all the pictures for the last time, I put them in the box and blew out the candles. Then we all went out to a bar and got filthy drunk!

stop being pissed that my ex boyfriend is already dating

I just broke up with him less than a week ago and he has already been out with a girl twice! Once Thursday to our restaurant and now to the Braves game! I guess this is the reason I broke up with him in the first place! He was already a dog!

stop biting my nails
22year biter no more!

Once I looked around and saw that EVERYONE else didn’t bite was time in my head to stop so I put glue on nails on for a week and then kept painting and peeling the nail polish everyday! 42 days strong!
