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.

| I seem to be endlessly stuck at the moment. As I recover from the heat-recoil my body likes to put me through in summer, I feel I can start moving and focusing a little better. However, the weekly overly-hot days (or rather the warm nights) still knock me out, and set me back at square one with many of my time-based goals. Today, however, I managed to get through more than 5 things. A step towards becoming unstuck perhaps… 3 years ago

Fernwehnot much happening on this front

I got a couple of freelance proofreading jobs from a company I interned for a while ago.

I don’t really have time for paid work at the moment with the current academic work overload. But the company pays really well, and I like being their go-to girl for proofreading.

At the moment life is generally all study, work, eat with SO, spend a bit of time together, sleep, rinse, repeat…

Eventually I’ll get back to this goal, and posting more generally. 3 years ago
