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.

JessPonMy state is OKLAHOMA

I now live in Madrid. I have been here for two years. Pretty sure I am here indefinatly. This summer I may take 6 of my Spanish friends to visit Oklahoma. I have been thinking of all the exciting tourist things I will show them. They will be surprised. Oklahoma is nothing like Spain. Also, planning a road trip from Oklahoma to New York so if anyone knows exciting stops along the way, please share. 2 years ago

When I was visiting home last summer I dug up lots of old journals, diaries, and poetry books. I scanned then all. I now have a digital record of my writings thru the years. Now to revisit and organize them….. 2 years ago

JessPonUnconditional love

I have found the ying to my yang, the ups to my downs, the smile to my tears. I have found the meaning of unconditonal love. It happend in a theater. It was instant. We knew in the moment. When our hands touched to say hello there was electricity. Relationships take work. Bringing two lives together has challenges. But I feel like I am flying. We are happy. We are peaceful. We love and laugh. It is the kind of story I always dreamed but never thought possible. The kind of life you imagine. It takes letting go of fear. Trusting. Erasing insecurities. Living in the moment and knowing that this is the greatest person on earth for me. That I did not settle. I did not give up. I found exactly what I always wanted. It is YOU. 2 years ago

JessPonNew Year Resolution 2011: get over her

It was a freeing journey to lay to rest hopes of a returned relationship. To finally see clearly the friendship so strong between us. To give thanks that the path of friendship has stayed intact during the previous years. And to look forward to a day when we will meet again. Sept 2008 is the last time we have seen each other. So, here’s to you friend of mine. I love you and I thank you. You are a great friend and confident. I miss you and I can’t wait to see you again! Enjoy the adventure of life. Un abrazo fuerte 2 years ago
