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.

Besina_SartorGood at giving them, now just to get more...

I’ve gotten a lot better at giving hugs, now I’m just waiting for other people to get comfortable enough to initiate them too. I don’t think anyone is freaked out by me giving them anymore, but getting one without being the one to initiate them all the time would feel especially nice. 6 years ago

Besina_SartorMore receptive, but...

I’m more receptive now when people want to hug me, but I’m not being pro-active about this. Obviously, unless I start initiating the hugging more, I’m not going to get more in return. Bad me, bad, bad me. I’ve got to quit being so shy about giving them. 7 years ago

Besina_SartorThis shouldn't be this hard.

I decided tonight that I was going to give my friends goodbye hugs. One is used to them, the other is a new friend and I figured if she’s going to get used to me as a hugger, better to start now than later on when she’s gotten used to me not hugging. Simple plan, right?

Maybe, but it fell thru nonetheless. Time came to leave, I was in a hurry and no one was specifically available to give a quick hug to without making the whole thing feel contrived. Ah well. 7 years ago


my grandmother is coming from the US today and she likes to hug and kiss a lot :) hehehe 8 years ago
