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.

I want to get back into

doing almost-daily updates on my livejournal and weekly or bimonthly updates in my bound journal (yay moleskine!). :)

Easier when away

Keeping a daily journal is so much easier for me to do when I’m away from home. It’s easier because in a different setting, I’m more “brave” about going out and trying new things and doing stuff. Being at home regresses me to the mousy little girl I used to be. Maybe not that bad but I still end up stuck in a little ditch doing the same routine things, work school work school work school, with the occasional stuff with friends on weekends. I go out decently enough but I still wish more of that time is spent trying new things, going to new places (not that there are many on this island). Therefore, I usually feel no urge whatsoever to write.

so far so good

9 days into the year and I’ve been faithful to my daily journal (this is progress since i’ve never been able to keep one past 3 days).

:D i’m not only writing but collaging as well.
