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.

Light bulb moment

I’ve just had an epiphany on this goal. For some reason I thought that a “romantic weekend away” had to be some expensive extravaganza. Pfft! So not the case! As long as we are together, I think that is what makes it fun and full of luuuurve. And seeing as we are both looking to keep the budget tight this year, I think the cheaper, the better.

I’m now looking into affordable caravan parks that have cabins available and are right next to the beach. Delightful :D


Potential getaway for S’s birthday next March…

Very keen

Well I ended up telling him about my idea and he seems very keen. So I will show him the website to the hotel and maybe we can book it soon. Yay!!!

Two year anniversary coming up

Our two year anniversary is coming up and I would love to go across to this Island just off the coast for the weekend. I have looked into hotels and I have found a nice (but slightly expensive) one. It includes the accommodation, ferry transfers, 2 breakfasts, 1 dinner and in-house movies. Sounds like a good deal to me. I am still deciding whether to organise it as a surprise, or tell him about it so that we can split the cost and have it as a joint present to each other.
