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.

Alexandra RichardsPurchasing A Home As Stable Investment

If you are looking into finding a place for yourself and planning to have it as an investment, you should purchase a house instead or renting.

Renting a home is simply for people who have no long term plans for savings and investment. Remember that houses and lots appreciate in value as years go by unlike renting where you only throw out cash monthly.

Having a property of your own as stated in could be own of your many achievements in life. 7 months ago

Alexandra RichardsBuy Your Very Own House

Purchasing a home is paying for something that you will own. Unlike when you are renting, you are paying for something that you will never own. In short, with renting, you are wasting your money on something that you will never own. That’s why you should look for a Home for Sale and buy it instead of looking for Home for Rent. Homes for rent are best for transient people who don’t have plans to stay in that place for a longer period of time. But if you are transferring from one state to another and you are planning to stay there for good, I would suggest that you look for House for Sale. For more information visit 7 months ago
