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.

Piscarius Poetry (read all 17 entries…)

i walk into her graceful light
through my eyes i see
past the dead winter trees
blackened and gone
Nor a leaf in the wind i see
Through pearl glimmering clouds
full of love and understanding
in all her glory
as they soak in her cold warmth
Thus is where she resides
years upon years it took
to reach my cheek
melting into my bones
In time for a midnight stroll

i loved it

New york has to be one of my favourite places in the world. So amazing and I can’t believe its only an hour flight away from me. Such a cool city with so many things to see and such cultural. Central park and empire state building are amazing! Cant wait to plan my trip again. I cried when i left.
