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.

but there’s just not enough income to keep it for too long. So, we just have to get more income or reduce expenses . . . at least we have 6 months here after foreclosure proceedings start. God will provide no matter what . . . but see #1 regarding successfully begging for money! 8^) 4 years ago

It’s been 8 months since I made the last entry on this goal, and the financial crisis is even more intense than it was then.
For details, please read my first entry under “Successfully beg for money.” 6 years ago

LiveADreamNowCould use some prayers

All I really want to say right now is I got us into a financial situation that’s coming at a bad time . . . there’s probably never a good time . . . and I’m just looking for prayers and a way to overcome this situation. I am trying to see this through James’ eyes . . . there is joy to be found in the problem and the overcoming of it. There is wisdom to be received from God (since I sure don’t have much) that will help us to still have a blessed Christmas.
Prayers are welcome and so are any good ideas on adding back some serious income over the next 8 weeks.
Thank you for your help and encouragement. 7 years ago
