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.

Mini List...

OK, I’m not removing this goal from my list because it;s something I still feel do-able.

Fair enough, the move to work in New Orleans rebuilding didn’t work out due to unseeable misfortune, but I remain optimistic and who know what’ll happen next year. It may be all systems go again.

I decluttered my list with goals that I was hoping to achieve from the move to USA but I will list them here, just to remember that if it every is back on again, they are still achievable.

1. Live in New York
2. Help victims of hurrican Katrina
3. Go to a mardi gras in New Orleans.
4. sing ‘Walking in Memphis’, whilst walking in Memphis.

A New Start...

This needs to be done. I can’t imagine my city being swept away. My home being destroyed. The things I possess and the places I loved to go, lost forever. I intend to spent my money that I earnt over the summer, on a ticket to America. I will go to New Orleans and help with Habit for Humanity. I have already contacted a lady from there who has provided me with the details. All I need to do is save up some more, and wait till the new year, when I can go…..I need to do this. Only for me, but for those who need it.
