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.

be more outgoing (read all 3 entries…)

ya so the bonfire actually went pretty well. i think i could have talked a little more, but i actually felt really comfortable around everyone and i had a lot of fun. i even made a couple of new friends.

be more outgoing (read all 3 entries…)

so i’m going to a bonfire tonight . I’m kind of nervous because all thats going to be there are people who i dont really kno very well.just the ones that i played sports with but never talked to and people ive been acquainted with but never talked to. i’m hoping i can be social at this party. i’m thinking about just getting drunk so i can loosen up a little. but at least one of my good friends are going to be there, so if all else fails at least i kno i wont be completely alone.

become a better writer

so i guess i’m an ok writer when it comes to writing essays and stuff. but i really want to become a better creative writer. i also want to be able to have a stronger vocabulary when i write things. i use a lot of simple words most of the time. writing is something i really like to do, but i dont think i’ve very good at it because it takes me a lot of time to find the words to say.

See all entries ...
