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.

I have talked a few friends out of suicide for a two or so years. It can be stressful, not knowing when someone may kill themselves and it often left me feeling like I would be guilty if someone died. The one mistake I made is not bringing an adult into the situation because I was afraid that my friend would be embarrassed and kill themselves. Helping a friend with suicidal problems can be scary and hard on people, especially teens,who feel like they NEED to keep their friend alive. Always ask for help if the situation becomes too serious because trust me, you won’t be able to make this journey with a suicidal friend by yourself. Also, keep optimistic for your friend and seek help for yourself if needed, because being with a suicidal friend can leave you feeling like no one is there for you, anxious, or you may develop harmful habits. Finally, encourage your friend to talk to his or her parent/guardian/ trusted adult. This will be the first step on the way back to a healthy life 1 month ago
