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.

Fall in love (read all 5 entries…)

Nevermind about the “new” guy, turns out he’s a jerk.

be determined

I’m not really sure if this entry qualifies for this goal, but I feel the need to talk about it. Lately I’ve noticed how incredibly immature and hurtful people are. I mean I’ve always known people were like that, but now that I’m more social, I see all this crap people do to their friends and the back-stabbing and gossiping. I don’t feel like I’ve stooped to this yet, but I’ve definitly starting gossiping a lot, having an attitude, and I’m starting to think this is okay. I just want to make sure I keeping myself in check and to remember to be me. Anyway, I just decided that not only should I be keeping myself in check, I can be better then that, I want to be a better person. Love people, be positive, smart, helpful, be all these things that I hope for these low people at my school.

Fall in love (read all 5 entries…)

Holy crap, I haven’t been on here in forever. Sooo love update! haha, this is lame. Anyway, Matt and I are through, it’s been almost a year and now I’m dating one of my best friends and crossing my fingers. He’s waaaay better then Matt, long story but Matt really screwed me over, but I’m a better person because of it, and have no regrets. Yet this whole dating seniors thing is setting too well with me though, him leaving is always in the back of our heads:/ but so far so good:)

See all entries ...
