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.

I’ve been thinking for a while about why I like Bookish. She’s thoughtful and interesting. There’s always an idea in motion in her mind. I like her direct, unaffected way of expressing herself. 8 years ago

edinaHappy Mother's Day, btw. / Believe in yourself. ♥

Sometimes we need some negatives in life so we can realize how wonderful it is when they are not there. They make the good that much better. Life seems to be about relationships. Compassion is relieving someone of their suffering and bringing them joy. That is what is most important in life. You are not alone, even if you feel as if you are. There are so many people that care about you that you probably just cannot keep track of all of them anymore. ;]

People choice whether they want to be happy or not and how happy they are. You can express gratitude and radiant promising delight in each day or you can dwell on a subject like we all do sometimes. Being present in the moment helps one realize mirth. You can solve whatever is bothering you because you are stronger than you realize. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, right? ;]

I hope you realize how wonderful your life truly is and I hope you overcome this mindset soon. Love & Hugs!8 years ago

Some people say not every day is supposed to be a ‘10’, but sometimes the is just too many days between the ‘10’ days. Hang in there, and know that a great day is coming your way, because you have earned it! 8 years ago

thatgirlsablove and kisses and hugs to you

I know very well that life can be really hard and suck sometimes. I also know how possible it is to send warm fuzzies and love to someone you’ve never met over the Internet. So here come a bunch of warm fuzzy hugs and kisses to you! You totally deserve to get through this feeling worlds better and knowing how many people out here care about you and are rooting for you!! xoxoxoxoxoxoxox 8 years ago
