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.

gossipgirlxoxoKeeping up with this...

I’m doing well so far. I’ll just have to keep it up once school starts again and I’m surrounded by catty people. Hopefully I’ll have grown out of it! 2 years ago

gossipgirlxoxoDoing well...

I’m able to keep my personal experiences to myself better instead of broadcasting them like I used to, and like I said before, I’m more careful about the things I say about others.

When I say I want to “gossip less,” I don’t mean spreading rumors type of gossip. I’m referring to letting out the things that people tell me. I have no idea when I even got this way.. maybe it was some of the girls I hung out with in high school. Looking back on it, they were a little catty and I guess it brought out that side of me too. But I want people to be able to trust me. It’s been going alright so far. I hope people will start to see that I’m approachable again. 2 years ago

gossipgirlxoxobetter than before

I think this one’s a lot better than before. I find that I stop myself from talking about other people’s business and am more careful about the things I say.

I don’t want to say I’ve completed it yet though as I still consciously have to think about it. I want it to be a natural thing. 2 years ago
