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.

Get rid of the dead weight.

An ex-husband and a couple of “friends”...I don’t ask much of people, which may be a problem, but when I do ask I make damn well sure it’s not someting impossible..Like simple respect..Those who couldn’t deliver on that simple reuest are no longer in my life.

Distance myself from those "friends" trying to help with their "constructive criticism". (read all 2 entries…)
I think they're all gone

Those that were left, have left..
I guess my lack of interest in ANYTHING they had to say, finally helped them get the hint..

Lose ten more pounds by the end of 2007

I stopped paying too uch attention to the weight..
I did cut out alot of “bad for me” foods, and that worked wonders.
When different friends see you and the second thing they say(the first being hello) is “you’ve lost alot of weight”(and not in a snarky way). You know you’re doing something good.
