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.

Salen11Deleting the past from my memory...

I really wish i could change the outcome of my last failed friendship.. I know i was wrong through some things, but i know it all wasn’t completely my fault like she says. There’s no confronting problems with her, and she leaves me hanging for weeks on my own, then gets mad that we never hang out anymore. oie.. idk. it’s the past, but somehow it still bothers me. I’m not the angry person i am anymore, and i feel like she tried to be that happy version of me noone could find. when i became that pink happy version of me she didn’t know who to be, so she just left.

I still have dreams where we just laugh and hangout like friends do, ya know? But i know that’s over with. And i’m tiered of apologizing. If i apologized today though, would it change anything? In a way i guess it’d make me feel better to leave things with her on good terms instead of what had happened, but i know it’d just get my hopes up that things were going to be happy and change, and they’re not going to. ...The past is the past i guess… 23 months ago

Salen11:-/ i want a new bestfriend

Having a bestfriend is the strangest thing. It’s like having someone new in your family, that’s specifically there for YOU. I’ve had two bestfriends…

My first bestfriend was Elisa. :) We kind of drifted apart..
My other one was Tori. ..But turns out we weren’t as close or alike as we thought… So now i just have me. And sometimes that’s not reassuring when i’m the one who’s putting me down. I really want a new bestfriend this year… Someone i can rely on, and talk to, and someone who’s not going to put me down, or make me feel bad. I’m tiered of negative people… I want something new… 23 months ago
