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.

stop staying up so late (read all 4 entries…)
some tiny improvement...

well i have been trying to start getting ready for bed by 10:30 so that at 11 on the dot i can go to my room and read a little instead of getting sucked in to the news or other 11:00 shows. i’ve been doing a little better but still end up getting to bed closer to midnite. i’m going to keep trying to move it a little bit earlier every day or at least every week. it’s so hard tho. i’m definitely a tv addict. it’s a nice distraction from worrying about everything i have going on in the world.

ugh still not over it

it seemed to be going so well for a few days but i still haven’t been able to stop this. this tends to be a stressful time of year in general and lately i am just furiously biting my cheeks and fingers. i just can’t stop. i really think medication might be the only answer for me at this point but with the bad experiences i’ve had with that i don’t think i will consider it at this point. i’m going to try therapy again, i’ve moved recently so i am a little weary of starting over with someone new but i think i need it. i’ll let you know if i find a way to stop.

stop biting my nails (read all 2 entries…)

well, unfortunately a side effect of less cheek-biting is that i suddenly started chewing my nails again. i have found over the years that if i keep polish on my nails at all times i don’t bite. so it was pretty stupid to take off the polish the day before i decided to quit my cheek-biting. so i had a little relapse. but i’m gonna do my nails ASAP and try to get back on track.

See all entries ...
