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.

alilcupof joglad for you as for me....

...i wish i had the courage.
i crave pop/soda- as im sure thats a familiar feeling youve had.
id like to not only quit but actually enjoy the alternatives…. embarassed to say i just cant stand water.
i’ll drink water if i’m thirsty but the sugar fix i get from pop is hard to curb.
pray my strength. seriously. def wanna conquer this.

alilcupof jograyheart youre not alone....

relationship ended- 2 weeks ago. :/
none of it feels good.

“not so” good news: some days are better than others
“good” news: some days are better than others

i wish there was a way to speed up the healing. you may too.
what i find helps is relying on friends and whats especially helped me is relying on my faith.

talk to your friends about it.
“real” friends.wont mind you blabbing/sobbing incoherently. smile. theyll also help slowly nudge you when its time to move from here.

ive surrounded myself with positive reinforcement… a GREAT resource is “The Single Woman” <—dont mind the title!
there are some EXCELLENT tools/advice on her twitter/website

and remember its NO cliche’ but….eventhough it may not feel like it, it DOES get better! 3 years ago

alilcupof jothis would be a great challenge for me...

id find this very difficult but i must say i like your technique- gradually weaning yourself off pop! wishing you continued success!!

alilcupof jothis is SO encouraging!

honestly thanks for sharing! CONGRATULATIONS!!
