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.

feistyredhead is getting organised for 2012

Organize my inbox (read all 5 entries…)

I have mail in 3 separate places, and I dread to think of how many old messages I must have. I like to keep old emails cos they remind me of plotting and planning for special events, but I really don’t need all the messages from one conversation! It would be great if I could find information when I need it – I think Outlook might be the key to this. And tidying might help me in my goal to stay in touch with people.

So overall this would be a really useful goal to achieve, I just dread to think how long it might take. As it’s fairly mindless work, ideally I would combine it with another activity, but I’m not sure what. If only my gym had PCs attached to the machines – that would be perfect!


Emails all over the shop!

I seem to have aquired about 4 email addresses now which is a pain as they seem to be good for different situations. I have a web-based one for checking anywhere, a work one, a personal one I can only check at home, and a forum-based one.
