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.

Biophiliamy best friend is my boyfriend

I guess I kind of have a female best friend, but it’s more of an old best friend… not like we had a fight or anything, just she moved across the country and our interests drifted apart. What I mean is I want a close female friend, a very classic slumber party and secrets kind of friend, though that sounds lame. Why are women so hard to get close to? I just dont think it’s healthy to rely on my boyfriend so much, I need more variety in my confidantes. 5 years ago

TawnBest Friend

I know this sounds super cheesy, but I’ve recently been thinking more and more about how I don’t actually have many friends. Yes I do have like 2 or 3 friends, but none are very close friends, and none of which I feel I can share anything and everything with.

So as I was realizing all this, I came to think that I’d really love to have a best friend, a female friend that I can share stuff with without feeling as though I’ll be laughed at or whatever. Someone I can spend time with, without actually having to do or go anywhere. Basically a traditional type of best friend. Someone that shares similar interests as I do.

Anyway, that’s my little entry for the day! 7 years ago
