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.

donah1007reading his latest entry

caused me to change my mind

We were going to meet in person tomorrow to talk about all of it. We were going to get everything out into the open. We were going to try to rebuild and reconnect.

He wrote an entry on one of his goals talking about me. It says it was posted about 6 hours ago. That’s the same time we were texting each other about getting together.

I’m hurt all over again.

I thought we were past the part where we hurt each other.

He said I do pre-emptive things. That’s true. I deleted him from Facebook and 43T because in the past he posted mean and hateful things on both of my pages when we were fighting. He did it on more than one occasion. I learned to protect myself from that.

He said I would come up with a reason not to talk to him. I think his latest entry is a fair reason. Maybe he should have thought about that before he wrote it. 3 years ago

donah1007he wants to talk

but I’m not ready

I’m not ignoring him. I’m trying to protect myself from emotional pain. I hurt him badly and in turn, he hurt me too. I know its human nature to strike back. Its also human nature to protect yourself. I can’t take the emotional impact at this moment.

I love him. I truly do. I just need time to heal from the things he said. 3 years ago

donah1007I love you

I’m hurting too. I’m sorry you saw those texts. I’m sorry I participated in those conversations. I promise with everything in my soul that nothing happened beyond texting. I’m not as strong as you think. It made me feel desirable even though I knew we were only joking. I liked the attention and I was weak.

I knew you loved me, but I didn’t realize how much.

We both are guilty of striking out at the other when we think we’re going to be hurt. We want to hurt before we get hurt. I’m sorry. 3 years ago
