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.

Climb all 7 of Edinburgh's hills (read all 6 entries…)
Thought of this recently for something different

Edinburgh is traditionally regarded as having 7 hills, it’s apparently based on the fact Rome was built on 7 hills. Edinburgh’s are not very high (highest is 251m) so it’ll be easy enough like most things it’s actually just doing it!

So far have been to the top of 4:
Arthur’s Seat (climbed it Friday past and about a dozen other times)
Calton Hill (last year and handful of other times)
Blackford Hill (few years ago two or three times)
Castle Rock (home to Edinburgh Castle – went as a child)

Still to go to the top of 3 more:
Corstorphine Hill
Craiglockhart Hill (East)
Braid Hill

Afraid not that was before my time. I’m lucky enough to stay about 50 yards walk from the Queens Park, in Abbeyhill.

StuartieG has gotten 2 cheers on this entry.


I want to:
