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.

thattroublekidI don't know how to stop

I just started living with my mum again. Im 14 and my life at home is scary. My social worker dumped me here because i ran away to much. I ran away because all the group home workers at all the places wanted to talk about my problems, and talk about what my life at home was like. I got 31 charges, and have three different court orders saying i cant run away. When i was in group homes, they called the police or my P.O and i would always get in trouble. Now that im at home, my mom calls the cops, but im in a different city, so most of the cops don’t know me and don’t bother with looking up my history. Because my home life is so shitty, i run away so i don’t have to face it all the time. I was so good, i ran away a lot less in the past six months, and now all that work is going away. I don’t know how to fight the urge to run anymore… 5 months ago
