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.

KittyheadSo, yeah...about this...

I’m looking forward to the day I can just learn something without getting a kick in the ass first.

So New Year’s Eve, I got this major ass kick, and I went into the generally accepted panic/victim/whine whine mode. But you know what? I’m still here. I still have the basics I need, and extras. And being paranoid about the worst happening every day is not serving me at all.

I believe my own negative mindset has brought me exactly what I’ve been fearing. And that shit needs to end, now. It’s been 3 years and I need to get off this merry-go-round from hell.

I have to remember what I love most, what I desire most, and focus on those things. I have to ignore well-intentioned but paranoid people who adhere to cultural norms that don’t set well with me. I will withhold my issues from them, so I won’t be bombarded by their negative gossip and seeing me on the downward spiral.

I don’t know too many compassionate, understanding people IRL. Most who act like that have been “commiseraters” rather than supportive friends. The rest are just licking their chops, waiting for new blood to drip.

I really need to move, I think. lol 2 years ago
