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.

funchildeLast Will & Testament

Complete! Also, power of attorney is finished. Now I just need to notify my executors/power of attny folks. 3 years ago

funchilde2nd quarter updates & still getting organized.

I finally figured out how to log into my largest retirement account and changed the mailing address so that everything comes to one place (hopefully, we shall see) and also updated my Net Worth calculator for the end of the 2nd quarter (june 30th). I do my net worth calc by month, but generally don’t update the investment accounts monthly, just quarterly for now.

To count this complete I think getting the last of my tax documents to the accountant, getting my final version of the will and estate plan I’ve worked with a lawyer on and looking into the digitial will per would just about do it. So…wow. This has taken awhile but I am close and I feel so much “lighter” and “free-er” and “grown up” having worked on this. 3 years ago

funchilde5-24-11: Update(s)

1. My Will is ready for review. I need to schedule an appointment with the lawyer for when I return from vacation.

2. I spent 4 hours at my Tax Accountant’s office today. PAINFUL, but DONE, prayerfully the worst is behind me. 3 years ago
