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.

Janey_M has written 6 entries about this goal

Walking in the Lakes

Two days of walking – day one Helvellyn from Dunmail Raise, and day two, a circular walk thotough Dodd Forest, to the summit of Dodd, and then across and along Carlside, over Ullock Pike and down Longside Edge.

Walk 5 - Skiddaw

Well, it was crossed off as a mountain, but I think this counts as a walk as well – Skiddaw via Little Man from the Latrigg car park.

Walking in Shetland

Several good walks whilst on Shetland – Sumburgh Head, Mousa, St Ninian’s and Noss circular, and a yomp across Hermaness. I’m not sure whether to count them as individual walks, or count the whole Shetland trip as one long walk!

Crow Crag

Did 5 miles or so round Wet Sleddale near Shap to see Sleddale Hall. Managed to resist asking the man with the flat cap in the Landrover “Are you the farmer?” Just.

Walk 2 - Sedbury to Monmouth, Offa's Dyke

Walked a section of Offa’s Dyke this weekend, which was a Thing in itself.

Sgwd yr Eira

First proper walk of the year from Pontneddfechan to Sgwd yr Eira and back.
