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.

I can’t believe it took me over two years to get this story down on paper. And even though it is a fan fic and I will never share it with my IRL friends, it still makes me very proud. I sat down, I wrote a novel longer than the Great Gatsby and I actually developed a story on which people give me positive feedback even though I regard it as a first draft and I want to do a rewrite. I never thought I could actually write anything else than short stories, I guess I was wrong.

58,574 words, 31 chapters and the end is getting in sight. I am working my way up to a sequel (don’t know why I would do that to myself hahah). I should really pick up the pace now I have more free time on my hands.



yes yes, I am a little ashamed of this one as well....

I write fanfic, mostly dragon age. I wrote a couple of short stories and am currently trying to write a mayor fic, you know 50.000 words short novel mayor. I am writing it in English, to practice that foreign language. I published four chapters and keep rewriting. I am currently working on chapter five and six simultaneously and already the story is getting stuck. It is a great excercise though and I am really pushing myself into finishing it. I see it as a test, to see if I can make the characters develop, find the inspiration to finish a story etc.

I think I should write on this every day from now on, even if I think most of what I write sucks.
