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.

Since moving to a new town, I’ve managed to make a few friendships – not super deep, besties or anything, but it’s a start. Outside of work, I don’t have tons of free time or energy, but I have one main hobby that I stick to routinely. A couple of the other frequent members and I are becoming friends. I think it’s important to be consistent and regular with hobbies – and most things. Not only do you get better, focusing your efforts on one thing, but people see you as a dependable fixture and begin to trust you. It’s good to maintain a balance between exploring new things and focusing on a couple favorites, but the latter is really necessary in the long run to develop deeper relationships and a real interest in your hobby, imho. 1 month ago

I can happily say that i recently turned a few people i’ve known for e while into friends. I invited them to my “moving in”-party and they invited me to theirs, and since then, we’ve been out 3-4 Times’ and i really enjoy their company. We’ve been talking about going to a Pole dancing class together. So far so good. I’ve also made one of my friends girlfriend a friend recently, and we’ve accually been hanging out more than me and her boyfriend. We’ll see how this goes but right now, it feels great. :) 6 months ago
