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.

Ways to become fluent in another language

+ Find someone else who wants to learn it, and speak and write it to each other as often as possible.

+ Find Web sites, online pen pals, local community college courses, books, training CDs

+ Listen to TV and radio stations in that language—just keep it in the background so you absorb it while doing other things

+ check out Web sites in that language every day, until you understand more and more of it

+ Move to a town, state, or country where that language is used

+ Don’t worry about making mistakes; do your best, and others will appreciate that you are making the effort to learn their language and culture



Find Internet sites that help

I found a great Web site called eduFire.com. There are free classes and flashcards and other things, and community you can practice writing to, and good tutors if you want. I love it!
