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.

hhannah dont be anyones slogan - you are poetry.

go deep sea fishing (read all 5 entries…)
Cod Jigging off the coast of NFLD...this was maybe

not quite deep sea fishing, however it did require a bigger rod and reel and Lure…holy crap that was the biggest lure Ive seen so far. The Cod were about 5 lbs each Rock Cod and regular Cod. They put up a very good fight and both my son and I caught many but only took three back that night with us where friends took us back to their fishing stage…(stage I learned is the little shed on the water where they can cut, salt, hang, do what ever with the fish and keep their fishing gear year round) so at the fishing stage it was fileted and R cooked it up amazingly for dinner. This goal stays as iM still game to get out and truly fish with BIG downriggers or nets. Wouldn’t it be cool to have my own fishing and cooking show??? Really ??? I think so! Goal still on list…waiting for my bigger fish.


Tarrador My God, it's full of stars...

We've had...

“farm to table” shows, why not a “ocean to table” show, too? Great idea!

cool I got a supporter!

Fishing the world with Hannah! well maybe a cooler name…is there a fish that rhymes with Hannah or a lure or fishing technique? I once fed some fish in Cuba a banana…they loved it…kinda weird, but then again my grandma used to bait my hook with raw bacon and we would catch Bass! you never know!

It really surprised me also when I saw how big those lures were. I was thinking, “how big are fish we’re going to be catching with a lure this big.” I quickly learned when our guide pulled one up on board. It was at least 4 feet long.
