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.

Normally, when you hear the word ‘travel’, you think of England, Egypt, France, Italy, and so forth – I normally think that way, too, but what about the places barely anyone knows about, other than the indigenous people of that specified area? The places that are not only forgettable, but they seem as though they’re from a different planet? Those places have always been the ones that fascinated me. The picture above isn’t just a painting, or a place from a movie, but it’s an actual garden in Netherlands, called the Keukentof Gardens. There are a lot of other places, too, that give off an otherworldly feel, such as Mount Roraima, Venezuela, The Marble Caves in Chile Chico, Chile, and Skaftafeli, Iceland (go Google the pictures of these places, they’re amazing!). The hardest part of traveling isn’t always the price, or how you’ll get there; but sometimes, it’s choosing WHERE you want to go first!

One problem, though, is finding such places (since they’re not so well known) x.x; Best of luck in your travels, too ^ If either of you want a list of places I’ve found, I’d be more than happy to give it to you ^
