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.

Search for the Loch Ness Monster
Did this awhile ago

I haven’t signed on this site in so long I was surprised to see this. When I first put this on my list I had no real plans to go to scotland but had always wanted to go to Loch Ness. One of the first tv shows I remember watching was about the Loch Ness Monster. Well just about 2 years ago I did end up going to Scotland and you better believe one of things #1 things on my list was to go to Loch Ness. Actually when customs asked what we were doing in Scotland one of the things we said was going to look for Nessie and the guy laughed so much :D So I took a boat criuse of the loch. Did not see Nessie, but had a really fun time. I love finishing a goal that didn’t seem realistic at the time!
