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.

When I get my travel card

For Brisbane, this is going to be easy, practical AND useful.
Getting trains all over the place is going to make the area a lot easier to navigate, the cards are an absolute bargain and it means I can broaden my job hunting horizons!
It’s less romantic than maybe I would have liked but it suits the current situation!

Finding the time

For this goal isn’t easy, especially since I’ve started working.
We’ll see how it pans out; definitely a 2010 resolution.

On hold

Until I have a week totally free xD
No October half term, Christmas is taken up by friends visiting for Hogmany, and Easter will be spent in Australia.
Next summer, for sure!


Going to do this this summer.
I don’t know how far afield I’ll go, but I have a railcard and very good rail connections :]
