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.

Luv4FamePut A Ring On It.

I love his smile, his soft lips, his everything. It’s only been six months that I’ve been in a relationship with him, but I just love him, I’m just waiting for him to pop the question. Gay equality has been a struggle and fight for main stream America, but it’s also been a struggle for people like me and my boyfriend. But knowing it’s legal in Colorado gives me hope! I just hope he’s willing to put a ring on it, yours truly Christopher L. Munoz 11 months ago

After 7 1/2 years of waiting and hoping, I told him to move out. It was very difficult. But it was the right decision for us both.

I admit that I often find myself mourning the life I’d hoped we would share; however, I’ve begun dating a man who works hard and treats me with kindness. In an added bonus, I’m pretty certain new fella isn’t hiding a secret meth addiction (yeeeeah, try that one on for size). New fella is also excited about starting a family and is already discussing marriage. I’ll get to be a wife and mother someday, but I’ll never marry my ex. And it’s better this way. 13 months ago
