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.

Looking good...

£164.29 to go!
So, £65 will go towards on Friday, and the rest will be paid off in the next 2 months latest. :)
So it’s all good. :)
Happy me, almost done with this pain in my backside! yeah!

Keep calm and carry on...

Another £10 paid off as well as the minimum monthly payment. Not much to go…
It will be all gone before Christmas… yeah!
The thing that helped me? I destroyed the actual card on purpose. So no more way to spend extra! And it’s almost gone!!!

Keep calm and carry on…

Almost there... almost there!

I paid another £20 off what I owe, got the minimum payment coming off every month as well… so I’m getting there… I am not getting any extra charge for lateness… Well, little by little, but by the end of the year, it will be gone! :)

A pain in my backside for a long time!

I have this little cash card I got off a store when making purchases.
AS i am outside my authorised limit, I get to pay other charges and else.

First things first. With new years resolutions, I decided I was gonna deal with it.
First, I started to install a Direct Debit to pay the minimum payment every month, which is about £12 per month. This little thing avoid me getting late payment fees. The minimum payment gets recalculated every month according to the balance, so next month, it will be less than this.

Plus, each time I get paid, I’ll put a little something on it. For this month I put £30, in 2 weeks I’ll be putting another small amount.

The goal is to write off the exceeding amount by the end of February 2010. Then I’ll have no more charges on it, except the interests rate.

I am glad I started doing this. For a time, I was feeling bad about it, and didn’t really want to do anything about it, thinking that problems will go away.

I now feel better, because I face the problem and actually do something about it.
