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.

It's Cold Here

Worth the experience, but not yet all I’d hoped it would be, and being away from everyone I love is hard, especially with how epensive phone calls are.

One Step Closer

My HSMP was approved after I appealed, so now I need to find a job and a place to rent. I’ll be in England. Not my dream place, but closer than where I am now. My relationship with my Italian sweetie pie is better than ever right now, so things are progressing nicely.

This Goal is Still on the table

I’ve applied and am awaiting a response from the UK’s Home Office. It’s just a wait and see thing at this point. Had a satisfying short trip to Italy in March – I loved Milan so much I’m wondering if I shouldn’t try moving there instead of England.
