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.

terriI do encourage him

but there’s no reason to be extra pushy. He knows what needs to be done and he will do it on his own time. His ex is unapproachable and I know it will be difficult for him to make that move.

He has been seeing photos through his family and I do see the look of love and pride in his eyes. I think he is starting to deal with it emotionally and really having the desire to do something which is a start. I made my feelings clear, that he needs to be peristent, he is missing out, etc. but it is not my place to push, he has to do it on his own. 8 years ago

terrieven though

his ex is being completely unreasonable. I told him he should write letters and send child support in hopes that she will come around. I know it isn’t my decision to make, I simply want to encourage him to do everything in his power. I know the idea of going to court is not pleasant but this way if it does come to that he will have something to show the judge. He has been trying to contact, he has being paying support etc…. It hurts me to see him hurting and I know that he would be a wonderful loving father. 8 years ago
