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.

For the last 15 years I’ve been in a constant state of loneliness and sadness. I don’t have any close friends and have never had a loving boyfriend. I was abused as a child which has resulted in me being withdrawn, awkward and very unsociable. Being around people in a social situation is like torture to me. I’m constantly worried that that I might do something to humiliate myself or that I don’t fit in. Perhaps that’s why I have no friends. I’ve only ever had one boyfriend (I’m 27 years old) who was also abusive although it took me a long time to realise. I just want to to have friends and someone to remember me on birthdays. I have no idea where I can go to meet people that doesn’t involve too much socialisation. I am thinking of attending some classes (art class, violin class etc) to see if I can meet people. I’m tired of being lonely and empty it’s time for me to live life and be happy! 3 weeks ago

Despite being unemployed and being temporarily separated by ❤, I realized that I’m finally happy. I find myself laughing and singing much now—a tell tale sign that I’m finally back to being my old sparkly self. 3 weeks ago
