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.

alymicfernCrap, crap, crap!!!!

I guess I will literally get to work on this goal VERY SOON (ughh!!!) since I have to take a Business Communication class that has an oral presentation as part of my grade. Yikes! I dread that more than anyone can imagine. It’s silly really, yet for some reason I just don’t want people focusing on me or having to talk in front of everyone. I know it is something that I wish I could do more comfortably so I guess that having to do it can only help, right? I can’t even pinpoint why talking in front of people is so terrifying for me but it is. I need tons of help and am seriously considering having a shot or five before class, but then I may stumble, belch, smell like booze, or worse, jump up on the podium and start dancing or something very ridiculous like that. Well at least I’d be entertaining in some small way anyhow! April 30th for a mere 5 minutes or so, yet it will creep to the front of my mind many times a day until then! This sucks… 7 years ago
