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.

yee haar!!

yeah finally sorted my taxes out! got a letter of confirmation. It’s taken 7 years of phonecalls and letter writing.



I wrote a chronically funny letter to them today

I’ve been e mailing them and phoning and faxing and letter writing to them sporadically over the last 7 years, to no avail!! (this is when i was last self employed)

I’ve told them repeatedly i’d love to go to court, may be then they’d leave me alone as i am NOT responsible for yearly tax returns.

But i put a spin on it today, no longer will they wind me up, i will write to them until it is acknowledged that i am no longer in self employment, but i will do it in such a way that i will pester them.

sent off a true but slightly cheeky and funny letter today.

will i get a response? who knows, it ain’t happened for 7 years.

they just love to threaten me yearly and add penalties so that i now owe £1600. aye right.prove it!!!!!!
