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.

sevinstoreyyes it's my fault

so I picked someone who is not very good with children(my children can’t read this and I would never say these things in front of them),and she is pretty self-absorbed,greedy,angry,materilistic,and most of the time a hateful person who is not happy.It is my fault,I should have been more “picky” about who I chose to procreate with,and it haunts me everyday of our life.I was not a perfect person in our relationship,I was young and stupid most of the time,but I’m older now and more mature and I want to put the children first,as it should be.The problem is her,she can’t get past the hatred she has for me and she has stated more than once she is going to make my life miserable for what I did to her,what did I do?I supported her through Nursing school and she is now an R.N. making well above average salary(twice as much as me),and she has two beautiful children.What is so wrong with that?Meanwhile back on the homefront,I do the best I can to deal with her outbursts(in front of our children)and her constant harassing(it’s been almost four years since the divorce),and her general hostility toward me.What am I to do? 6 years ago
