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.

I am re-adding this

It was on my list of 43 for a while and now it is on my list of 100 things to do before I die but I want it back here. Because I just recently found out how easy this would be to do and I am really going to do it someday!
Of course, I have daydreams of living and traveling like Isak Dinesen and I tend to romanticize my spinster great-great aunts’ adventures but the reality is that people do this all the time. You get out of something what you put into it.
I found this website. I want to do the Best of Zimbabwe Wing Tour but that is only because it sounds classic (Best of…) and it’s relatively cheap but seems to have most of what I dream of. Of course, I haven’t played around on the site very much yet so this could change.
How exciting to have a new dream! Heeheeeee

AmyBB25 has gotten 57 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
