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.

find true love
All of your entries are great!

Everyone seems to be very much in tune with what they want. I am also, but getting there is another story. I am already married, but am working on getting out of it because it is, as Bo stated below, the narcissistic kind. What is holding me back is that I am afraid to be alone. I’ve been alone for a week and a half and my anxiety is peeking, my blood pressure is up, and I’m so depressed. I don’t know how to get past it. I’ve been told that I need to be comfortable and love myself before I can give the kind of love that someone else needs. Is that true? Why can’t you meet someone else right after a breakup? I do love myself, but I want to have someone to share my life with.

lower my blood pressure
Not sure what's happening to me!!

I don’t know why, but my blood pressure has been up for about two weeks now. Maybe it’s not even my blood pressure, but it feels like my head is going to pop off. My neck is tight, my eyes burn and I have a headache, and no, it’s not my sinuses. Anyway, the doc once told me that it was my bp and that I was just really sensitive to it. It scares me to death and I don’t know what to do. I don’t think it’s high enough, but haven’t been back to the doc because I’m scared. I’m trying natural things like eating grapefruit and extra fiber and exercise. These all help temporarily. Unfortunately, I am the type that would keel over dead before considering taking medication. If anyone can give me some other ideas on natural remedies for blood pressure, I would appreciate it.

Get and stay organized
I'm so proud of myself!

I am in the process of doing this. It’s not finished yet, but I’m getting there. I think the hardest thing is just getting started. If you just take on one thing at a time, it is a whole lot easier. Needless to say, my house was a mess. I just started in one corner and when that corner was done, I just kept going.
