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.

Graduate Program

There’s this graduate program for next year that I reallyyyy want to get into. It sounds perfect for me. I have passed to the second round of assessment, and I should find out in the next 3 weeks if I have got an interview. There are a lot of applicants each year, about 1500, and they interview 150 and hire about 30. So I probably shouldn’t get my hopes up too high, but it just sounds so good! The only thing is, I live in Adelaide, and the job is in Canberra. Which is fine for me, but my best friend, sister and parents have all said they don’t want me to go! My boyfriend says if I go he’s coming with me! I would miss everyone terribly, but I would get so much from this! And it’s only a year to begin with!... I want this one!!
