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.

Working on Chase 1

I currently owe 3300 on this card. I applied for a consolidation loan and was denied so I have to do this on my own. Oh well. Just more motivation. So, I have had a savings account with 2000 because I wanted to move and that was my down payment, first month, and mover expense. So I am going to give up on moving until I pay off this debt and figure out what middle school my kyd will go to in a year.

So, I have been adding money to the 2000 and it is now at 2600. Once I have the 3300 saved, I will pay off the credit card.

Then I can tackle the Chase 3 card. (I paid Chase 2 off in February. How awesome will it be pay off 6000 in debt in one year.)I have one credit card that will take the most time to pay off. It is close to 10K alone. My young self was so dependent to credit cards. Ah well. We live and learn.


timothy woodhead is trying to get a grip

Would you be better off sticking the saving you have on the card.As it probably costs more in interest than you are making?

Yes, that is what I said I was going to do with the money in savings.

Fancy has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
