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.

Travelling A-Z Europe (read all 4 entries…)
S is for Saarburg

It’s a must-see place in the Southern part of Germany. It’s beautiful and it’s full of lovely restaurants. It’s perfect for a photography trip. The castle ruins can be visited for free and the view from the top of the tower is breathtaking. You can also hop on a cruise. Don’t expect to shop here: the small boutiques are insignificant and expensive.

Lost and not yet recovered

In the meantime, my camera broke. Thankfully, I’ve managed to get it fixed, but it was such a shock that I still don’t dare use it. Also, when I use it, I take crappy photos. Like I’ve totally forgotten what I’ve learnt about my camera. So I’m trying to muster the courage to use it and practise until I can take wonderful photos again.

Build up my ideal life (read all 5 entries…)

I should sit down and have a look at all my goals and plans, but alas, like so many times, I don’t have time for myself. Yet, my ideal life is taking shape, so I’m happy and grateful and maybe soon I’ll have the time to sit down and think about myself.
