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.

dip my toes further into the waters of the working world

I think it’s safe to say that my toes have been dipped further and I’m about ankle deep now in the experiential waters of the working world.

Over the past year, I’ve been working part-time for a small online company and have recently made the switch to working from home. It is such a luxurious comfort and time-saver which I’m grateful for. Countless hours have been wiled away on travelling to and fro.

Since the start of 2012, I’ve also begun teaching English and Creative Writing enrichment classes to 7 and 9 year olds. This is something I look forward to each week. The children bring me such joy and my energy is recharged and revitalised whenever I see them. This is, by far, the best and most favourite job of mine. 2 years ago
