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.

Sell the house I own with my ex-husband


Recent activity

Celesteit is finished

exchanged some words with ex before and after the signing. He really needs to pay me what he owes me, I should have demanded it as part of the house deal but he has agreed to pay me monthly. If he misses just one month I will get a lawyer and take him to court. It is a completed deal now, my portion should be wired to my bank account tomorrow. 9 years ago

CelesteWe sign today

Very soon I am going to be able to move this to the right hand column! wooo woooooo!!! 9 years ago

Celestejust waiting to see if there are any glitches

If no the closing should be this week. I took boxes over to ex yesterday (he has more stuff to move than I do). During the next week I need to make arrangements to move my “big” items (some furniture) and also to get a tow for my car that has been sitting disabled in the garage for 6 years. 9 years ago

CelesteOMG! I think we did it!

we took 1500 less for some fix up things on the inspectors list…NOW all that is left is the closing!! YAHOOO!!! (oh well I will have to move my stuff out but that will not be a problem!) I don’t really get much money out of this, since ex h kept refinancing out the wazoo—but it will be something that will help me make a few repairs to where I live now and I will put the rest into savings. Hooray!! 9 years ago

Celestelowered price yet again

open house tomorrow 9 years ago

CelesteMight be reducing one more time

ex h and I had “words” over this. I am sick of reducing the price and see no reason to get all hysterical. If it doesn’t sell within the time frame we should just take it off the market and put it back on. Told him, however, I will leave it up to HIM right now. He is to decide about the price. Talked to the realtor. Realtor says it should have had offers by now. That it hasn’t is an indication that we still have it too high. 9 years ago

I’ll help clean the house and make it sparkle. 9 years ago
