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.

slowly but surely

It’s taking forever because other expenses have came up but these are my new balances:
Weokie Loan: 1943
Capital One: 559

And that’s it! Oh crap, except for the money I owe my parents. I forgot about that. $1200 I think? Ughh. Well I got a raise this year that will take effect in June. And I got a 2nd part-time job at a restaurant that I will start tonight so…we’ll see how that goes.

i paid off two credit cards!!!!!

I am really excited about that. One didn’t have a very large balance but it was the one with highest interest rate (30%!!) so I’m glad it’s finally taken care of. Oh yeah and I FINALLY paid this overdue cash advance…I forgot about that one
What’s left…
Cap One—750
Personal Loan—-1900
My parents—1200 I think

can't wait!

just moved back in with my parents at the beginning of this month and i am finally getting caught up on all my past due bills so i haven’t been able to put any towards my credit cards yet…I still have
Cap One $750
Cap One $687
Chase $89
Weokie Loan $2000

ahhhh! I can’t wait to start putting money towards this. I should be able to apply at least $1000 from my next paycheck to this debt…that’ll be good.

About $5,000 worth

Which is why I am temporarily moving back in with my parents. I should be able to get this knocked out fairly easily. I have a $2000 personal loan, 2 maxed out credit cards, 1 credit card with only $140 on it…I owe my parents about $1200 and I’m sure I have a few things on my credit report that need to be taken care of. I can’t wait to accomplish this goal. It’ll be such a huge weight off my shoulders. Also, I have some other goals that cannot be achieved until this one so… I’ll be updating on how this comes along!
