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.

post random happenings of my life (read all 5 entries…)
March 2010

I am on here and just now realized how long it has been since i have been on here. I tend to flock to this site when i am exausted with things in my life and well right now I am, exausted. This too shall pass. Yes, I know.



lose weight (read all 8 entries…)
not done so well

I have not been 43things motivated in a long time now but that is changing. As far as my weight well, I have gained more since my last post. A year or more ago. So, I will just have to work harder and I will get this done. This will be one thing that I know I will accomplish.



Make new friends (read all 7 entries…)
Untitled

So many days I just want to give up on this. I don’t think I have had a converstaion with a “friend” in over a year. If not longer. I think I should give up. I cancelled my myspace account today. After almost four years of being on there I had accumelated all of 50 comments and maybe 8 friends all people I have worked with that where probaly only there out of sympathy. It was a waste having that account anyway. It’s a bigger waster wanting a friend.
