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.

ahappy2010Just starting

I don’t get out much, i only have one friend who lives locally and i only hang with her once a month. Therefore i spend a lot of time at home when i rather get out every once in a while. I think it also help me face my social anxiety and hopefully make things better. I want to take myself out of 3 dates :) To a restaurant, to a movie, and to a local attraction. 4 years ago

disukWorth doing !

:) 19 Apr 2007

I had lunch @ Mado Restaurant.

It feels great, to be apreciated ! :p :))

I wanted to feel single again. all that freedom and bliss. being independent and all. feeling myself. ... to remember that I don’t have to be dependent of others in order to live my own life.

I have a fav rest (“Broken clock”) where i go by myself and also with friends.

I spent 2005 and 2006 New year’s Eves the same way, refusing invitations. I felt great. So I was happier on 2007 with “the others”.

RuthyMissing something

My gawd. i really really need some me time. And I desperately want one. its just that I cant get the guts to face my fear of eating alone inside a resto. It feels like I’m such a loser. Maybe, just maybe I should pick a non crowded resto in a non crowded mall just to ease the awkwardness of eating alone…

Sometimes, losing some company makes me think I’m such a loner. Hayyyy. 8 years ago
