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.

Living in Paris

So this is my fourth week of being here, and although Paris is kinda odd at the moment because all the Parisians have left Paris for their Summer Holidays, it’s still amazing.

I’ve found a lovely Hausmannian apartment near to Gare de Lyon, really close the wonderful Marche d’Aligres :)

Got a job, just need a place to live...

I’ve finally found a job working in Paris – I start on the 7th August as a web designer! I’m stoked at the prospect of fulfilling this dream I’ve had for so long :)

All I need to do now is a find a place to live…

I’ve got to work here in England until 28th July, and so I’ll bring over a backpack on the 29th or 30th. Although I think it will be hard to find a place as Paris empties for August. Ack.

I can’t wait to make the city my home, though!
