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.

TheBestMeowA little cynical

I suppose I’m a little better for the wear now. I still feel worthless, but that’s usually when someone passes a caustic remark on me. It has reached the point where I cry silently once I get away, because sometimes I just don’t feel like I belong.

It’s worse when it comes from family. Friends don’t really come out and say it as freely, see? But, I know that my family has a thing about being a little emotionally distant. I can’t disclose all. The one time I tried, I was rather hurt by the reactions to what I was saying.

Mostly, I feel I’m rather different from everyone else in the family. And yes, I’m a little lazy, but I have no motivation to even feel like a part of the family at the moment. There’s been a string of misfortunes, and our economic situation in tight, and it’s resulted in a more or less omnipresent loss of humour. It sucks, frankly. But I’m more comfortable with coping and handling when people don’t ignore me, or simply think I’m worthless .

But I’ve made the decision to boost my confidence now. Regularly. And to work at the family thing. Helping out, in any case. 3 years ago
