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.

Layover in New York

On our way to Dublin later this year we have a 7.5 hour layover in New York. We are going to try to get over the Ellis Island so we can see Anne Moore and Lady Liberty.

I want my picture taken with both Stautes

Annie Moore was the first immigrant to the United States to pass through the Ellis Island facility in New York Harbor. She is honored with two bronze statues at the Ellis Island Immigration Museum and in Cobh, the Irish seaport from which she sailed. In the statue in Cobh she is looking toward New York and the statue in New York she faces Ireland. I have had my picture taken with the statue in Cobh. Someday in the next few years I would like to go to New York and have my picture taken with the one on Ellis Island

Lynli has gotten 7 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
