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.

Tarant Timproving...

I can express myself a bit better now.. at times. I still don’t express myself emotionally that much, but I’m better at it now.. seems like slow progress, but still, it’s progress. I think that’s what stands in my way of forming more meaningful connections with people. 2 years ago

One minute past midnight…happy Christmas.
Even though we’ve agreed being friends is the best thing for both of us now, I’ve never wanted to tell you I love you more than now.
You said you’d like it if we still spoke regularly, every day even…
Well, since we made that decision, 2 weeks ago, we must have spent the equivalent of 24 hours on the phone trying to talk everything through so we can move on…
I still really, really haven’t. 2 years ago

shuntsforshuntnaI didn't realise how absolutely incapable I am of this until right now.

I can’t tell people what I’m most worried about, what I feel insecure about, when I have feelings for them…

Something pretty common, I’m sure…but there should be at least one person in the world who you’re able to do that with.
