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.

Mariait's simple...

...i jus’t don’t need to find them anymore, or even know if they exist.
I accept myself as i am, and i learn to accept everyone else as well.

Cassandra KingHow I did it

One day I woke up and realized that no matter where you go, everyone is going to be different. You just have to open your eyes and realize that people like us are hidden everywhere.
I’m more of the quiet type, and by studying people and their reactions to things I decided who to spark a conversation, and later a friendship with.
The only road block is your mind, you have to realize you pick your friends. Literally. Who you decide to talk to is entirely up to you, and eventually (over time) those conversations will lead to friendships that can withstand anything you hurl at it. Just don’t try to force a friendship. Start of talking every now and then, and eventually it will lead to longer conversations.
Trust me, everything will work out and fall into place. 13 months ago
