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.

gypsyish is trying to find meaning.

pay off my credit card
I always said I wouldn't have credit card debt...

...but now I have about $3700 to pay off. At the time I used the card it wasn’t a problem. I had a well paying job and a fiance splitting the bills with me. First I lost the fiance, then I lost the job. Unemployment pays me just enough to pay all my bills except for the credit card.
I don’t go to the movies, I don’t go out to eat, I haven’t even bought new clothes in months. I’ve had to be creative in finding ways just to make the minimum monthly payment. I’ve actually paid off about $1000 with my tax refund. I have $200 set aside for this month’s payment which should take it down to $3500.
My goal is to find a full time job in April, and possibly a part time job as well. Unfortunately I live in a state where the unemployment rate is quite high, but I’ll be trying my best. All I can do is that.
