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.

CageLoves good bye 43Things

Hey! What about Angels Stadium in Anaheim.

(Photo is a postcard I bought for Postcrossing.)

Haven't been yet.

I’ve never had the chance to go see a game the few times I’ve been in L.A., but I’ll make every effort to visit it.

Safeco Field

Safeco Field here in Seattle is well worth the visit. I wish I had been able to see a game at The Kingdome before Safeco was built.

I used to do a bit of traveling but Ive only actually been able to visit a handful of parks. Yankee Stadium (old)
Three Rivers Stadium (old)
Fenway Park
Oriole Park at Camden Yards
and
Safeco Field.

I dont travel anymore, but wish I had been able to attend games in more stadiums. Of them all that I missed, the one I truly wanted to see the most was Tiger Stadium. Ty Cobb played there and I really wanted to see it.

On my list

I was in Seattle about 6 months ago (i.e. no baseball), but I am hoping to go there again during baseball season.
I really want to visit Camden Yards and Wrigley Field. Camden looks pretty cool and Wrigley is a classic. I’ve been around Wrigley plenty of times, but never in for a game.
Let me warn you that Tropicana Fields (the Rays home) is a terrible stadium, so don’t go out of your way for it. But I need to make an effort to go to the Marlins new stadium. Hopefully this year.

I saw a story about a gentleman who started doing this same thing but with college football. He’s also partially blind, and knows he will end up completely blind, so he hopes to complete his goal of watching a game at every stadium/field. I thought it was a pretty awesome goal.

This is too a baseball fan myself… I gotta admit this is awesome. :)

I heard it too

I also heard a story of a father and two sons that took 6 months to see a game at every MLB stadium in one season. I’d like to do a road trip and hit at least all the East Coast stadiums (Atlanta to Toronto, Boston to Kansas City … well, maybe skip KC and St. Louis = too far West). I think that is doable in a couple of weeks, which is probably all I can take off of work.

hey more power to ya!! That’d definitely be cool to do & write about! If I could manage the time off & money to do it I might do it too :) but eh I have kids and no paid time off lol

Been to 2 of 30. Going to Comerica this summer for number 3. I’m going to have to make this a goal too.

Bigmighty When you’re going through hell, keep going.

I hope you don't beat me at it.

but good luck to you and I hope we both get to complete this goal.
