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.

barbar_ellai'd rather be alone right now

and i would rather be patient and suffer temporary lonliness and eventually be socially exclusive. Bad company is the more destructive than lonliness in my oppinion. friends are pretty easy to meet and i always seem to have some down to earth people around.

being alone can actually be really comfortable and fun.

and otherwise i guess i want to be secure. which is a work in progress. but will be accomplished. 5 years ago

barbar_ellamy own life boat

i know if things went wrong i would have a lot of difficulty in my life. and i have been there before and seen other people in that situation. i know what that is like and you can live through it, but it’s so hard, it rarely works out honestly.

i want to have my own source of finances so i don’t have to rely on anyone. i want money saved up.

i don’t really believe that you can rely on others. i want to feel ok with myself so that i don’t have to rely on others. so i guess that is that i want to feel secure. 5 years ago
