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.

mignonno more amex card!

I am debt free- and want to keep it that way- so I decided to keep just one credit card, which is not a real credit card- I pay what I buy with it 4 weeks later.
to keep track of what I buy easier it is better for me not to have two different cards.
and the yearly fee will be used to get a wonderful massage (or two!) 3 years ago

mignonfeels right

and is definitely worth it.
my energy is limited and I want to honor my hard working and the hard working of other people.
I almost never waste food, try not to waste energy.
sometimes I buy things that I do not need, though.
will try to change that.
took out the credit cards of my wallet and will pay with cash the next weeks (or longer?) to feel it more how much things cost.
I already noticed that I am much more price sensitive when I have to give away cash for something, so thats good I guess.
will see. 3 years ago
