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.

Arbgirlbaby steps

My husband and I managed to get through the entire Christmas season without using our credit cards, and I’m so proud of us! We just budgeted and did our shopping wisely and had a great time!

Now, however, we’re having cash flow issues. I got a bit spooked about not knowing exactly how much money we’ve got when and I signed up for online banking. I’m really excited about how much information you can get and how quickly it’s available. I’m hoping to use the up to date statements to do some better budgeting and tracking. I think that will help me worry less about money. We’ll see! 8 years ago

ArbgirlWorry wort

I know I spend a lot of time worrying about money, and I wish I didn’t. But for now, I know that until I am free from debt (credit cards, student loans) and prepared to pay for most unexpected things that come along (broken appliances, medical bills) I will continue to worry! 9 years ago

This would be terrific! I’d love to never ever have to think about where money comes from again. I’d like for it to just be there whenever I need it so I can do what I want, when I want. 9 years ago
