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.

Improving my English

For as long as i can remember my English has always been terrible. I often have problems with my spelling and grammar. The most embarrassing thing is that i am indeed English. I was born and lived in the UK my whole life. The voice in my head is currently speaking in English.

I don’t know why i have this problem. I always jumble up my words and bugger up my grammar whenever i type anything. When i re read what i wrote i know there’s something wrong but for the life of me i can’t see it. A lot of people correct me on my grammar. I have a lot of foreign friends who ask me to correct them on the English grammar in their essays. How am i meant to help them with their English if my one was terrible.

A lot of the time my difficulty with English absolutely destroys my confidence when I want to write something. this time i deliberately didn’t check this entry for mistakes so you can see how poor my English really is
