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.

Beat my depression
Still doing it...

I have beaten my depression for now. I know that I can make it, and be content. Some days are better than others, but right now I am in a really good place. I owe it to a great support system, years of therapy and anti-depressants. I never thought this was possible. I am finally content.

feel loved
I hope for this.

I hope for feeling loved and wanted. It seems I always go to the people who can’t give it to me. This makes me sad, hopeless, and confused. Is it me? Is something wrong with me? I am just trying to figure things out.-

buy a Honda Element
I want one!

I didn’t really like them that much until I actually rode in one! I LOVE IT! I just need to get out of college and get a real job! :)
