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.

do work for myself – and sign on at the same time. result. ... occasionally have to “borrow” money from gullible friends and family – but then travelling to geneva every month and maintaining lifestyle comes at a cost. not to me though. 22 months ago

ahhskeetkidLost Love, Sign From Above

I failed to maintain happiness in my relationship with the love of my life. She said she needed something to change and it ended up being me. I couldn’t keep up with her, shes so talented and smart and I found myself in a hole for 3 months and that decided it. So many regrets and so much hatred toward myself. I sit here heartbroken, but I understand. I need to work for me from now on. Not anyone else. I have to stop giving things up and start getting more. I hate this life, its such a joke. But from now on I’m going at it in my shoes, for myself. 23 months ago

Working away, slow but steady, some days I manage only a single page, some days given to research so nothing is written, but the website is growing daily and I have ideas for other things too. I feel that within the next year I will turn a corner with this and begin making a proper income. Yay. 2 years ago

Working too many hours on this, but have made great strides. Resolved all my problems by myself, lots of research, made notes for the future, in case I run into these problems again. Have taken the last two days off as I was feeling really overworked and stressed, not sleeping well. Catching my breath. Back to writing content for my website on Sunday. Looking forward to monetizing the website in January or February at the lasest. 2 years ago
