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.

pharmjoI dont know how i can ever repay them....

Today, knowing i’d be wobbly again i was greeted at uni with a few motivational signs stuck to my lab bench, a chocolate muffin, at least 3 cups of tea, a pep talk every hour by someone different taking a different angle on various things, a night at the greyhound races, a beer in my favourite bar and about 15 hugs, and those were only the ones i’ve actually seen! I guess i never actually NEEDED them before so i’m constantly shocked at how far they’re going to keep me afloat, i feel less then adequate as a friend now, have i ever put this much effort into any of them?! If not i bloody will do now, i’m not scared to tell them i love them any more because i realise i genuinely do, i’d be nothing without my friends! 3 years ago

pharmjoI love my friends

I was recently dumped in the most horrific way possible, all i wanted to do was end the pain, however, an unexpected friend steped into the breech and rescued me! he didnt have to, he owed me nothing apart from the fact it turns out he actually likes me, i was not his responsibility in any way shape or form yet he chose to go through it with me! It was a turning point in our friendship and made me re-evaluate many of my others! I had lost one of my best friends but once she learnt of my situation she came back, no judgment, no making me feel bad, she just slipped back into her prior ‘best-mate’ role and i apprecate her for it! I’m now making an effort to salvage some distant friends who have slipped away for one reason or another and also, cement the new ones, friends are forever once they are estabished no matter how bad you fuck up! 3 years ago
