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.

so sunday i am going over my “budget” and what i need to start saving for the future … the main reason that has gotten me on this path is i am 26 and when i turn 30 i seriously want to start looking at adoption options. BUT i can’t do that if i don’t have the savings and income needed. planning ahead. always a good thing!

at least one chid

every since i use to work for alameda county adoption unit i swore that i would adopt a child. it’s so sad to see the struggle the go through and the wait that they have to indure. i’m not sure if i want to do a domestic adoption, just because i would be affraid that the biological parent would come back and say hey i want a shot at raising my own kid, and the way our system is so screwed up the would let them. i dont think that my heart could endure that. if not a domestic adopotion then definatly somewhere from my heritage, mexico or spain
