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.

Chrys734I filed papers to get a court ordered name change

I filed papers to have a legal change of my first and middle names to female names. The announcement was posted in a local paper the required four times, and next month, I’ll get the court order, and then I can change my name on my social security card, my driver’s license, birth certificate, and credit cards. 10 months ago

Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyMarriage License

I sent in the marriage license today. We paid to get a certified copy when we got our marriage license. So, hopefully we get will get within this month. Of course, the earlier the better.

After we get the marriage certificate back, I can go to the Social Security and get my name changed on the SS card.

Concurrently, I will update my bank’s information with my new name. 21 months ago

mwinkMake It Official

I’ve been known by my English name for practically my entire life, but my legal name remains my ethnic name from birth. This name change will only make official the name I truly identify with.

Next steps after name change:
  • Update banks, schools, employer, passport, driver’s license, health card, tax forms, social insurance, etc. 3 years ago
