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.

Altonece is doing the damn thing.

REVISED: Pay off 2 more credit card bills by June 30, 2010. (It was Dec 31, 2009.) (read all 6 entries…)
Praise HIM in advance!

Hey there…43Thing-ers! I received a merit bonus and a company bonus and with that money I will pay off 2 bills in full. Whoo hoo! I won’t remove it from the list until it is officially done. So that will be tomorrow. As much as I want to strike it off now, I will do it tomorrow when it is really, really DONE and DONE.

I would love to go shopping, since I do need some clothes. Or really I would like to pay one of my other bills that is less so it would leave me with more money left over…but I had to be a big girl and “panty up” and get rid of the “thong” and do what big girls do. I could not rationalize paying off the bill w/ a 14.25% interest rate over the card with 23.99% interest rate. So that is that.

Super excited. That leaves me with 2 cards left and I should be able to pay that off in the next four months, unless I happen upon another windfall of money.


Keep up the good work ya’ll.



I want to:
