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.

gracet79should do it more often

After a long gap I started listening to it a month ago but havent been able to listen to it as directed. I only do it when I go to work ie, 3 days a week. But I must say it is a really good one. the vocabulary lessons are good. 3 years ago

sitruunapuuSomething to think about...

I’ve been thinking lately, especially when I’ve been feeling particularly brain dead and unable to learn much new despite really trying, whether I should consider moving to an English-speaking country instead of a Spanish-speaking one. As much as I love Spanish and Spain, I really haven’t felt like I’ve the brain capacity for learning a new language lately, so I’m wondering whether I should make life easier for myself and move to an English-speaking country first and live there until I feel like I’m ready to learn a new language… after all, I do want to improve my English as well, so I’d be glad to do that too.

Decisions, decisions. I haven’t really thought of this before, and now I’m not sure which English-speaking country I’d like to live in… Might be the US actually, which is strange because I’ve never thought of living there, but now that I think of it, it could be interesting. There’d be so much to choose from, so many different states and cities… another option might be Australia.

I have to say that the idea of having to only improve my English feels very relaxing as I can most of the time express what I think, which I really can’t do in Spanish, so getting to know people would be much easier too if I could speak English. In Spanish, I could imagine having much harder time getting “in” because I couldn’t discuss about anything beyond the weather and the basics… of course my Spanish would improve with time, but I still wonder whether I should take the easy way out.

Hmm. 3 years ago
