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.

eat less (read all 2 entries…)
Not bad, not great.

Been doing pretty good about this. But not enough to make a change.

SO far today I’ve had a glass of milk and some animal crackers. Looking to have broccoli and spinach quiche, orange juice and lots of water for the rest of the day. This is tough, but I think it’ll get easier as I will be starting school tomorrow and will therefore be too busy to even THINK about food!

Find an Ana budy

need someone who will:

-txt throughout the day
-send random encouraging txt
-be able to respond in case of an emergency

stop chasing him
I need to be my own boss

I just recently started talking to my “ex” without feeling upset. Before I couldn’t talk to him because I missed him so much and I thought I needed him back in my life, but I finally figured out that that’s not true! I don’t need anyone to make me happy. I am better off alone than with someone who has the power to make me miserable. The thing is, that now he’s the one who’s trying to talk to me, and I seem to be slowly falling back into my old routine, and I can’t let that happen. So far, I haven’t spoken to him today, but I did send him a txt in the morning and he hasn’t said anything back. I’m not going to txt him until he does. And even then, I will make him wait!

See all entries ...
