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.

15. New York

I can’t believe I forgot to mention NY. I went to NYC in high school and fell in love. Just knew I’d live there one day. My cousin lives there now; so I just live vicariously through him.



14. Texas

My dad used to live here, so I have been several times. We went to Galvaston in the summers. He lived in Houston and hated it, so I never really liked it either. I do love Dallas though.



13. kentucky

I’ve never been as pleasantly surprised with anyplace as I was with Kentucky. The part I went through was probably the most beautiful country I’ve seen ever.



12. Florida

I love Florida. The ocean is my favorite place in the world, and Disney World is the ultimate place to take children. Not just because they enjoy it so much, but because it’s so child friendly that you don’t feel stressed out. If your kid is loud in a restaurant or makes a huge mess, they really make you feel like it’s fine. In fact, the bigger mess your kid makes, the happier they appear. They all deserve oscars but it makes a great vacation for a mom.



11. Georgia

We just got back from a trip to Atlanta. It was a short trip and we didn’t see a lot. There was a small town north of Atlanta called Marietta. I could live there.



10.Arizona

We only drove through, but we saw the Grand Canyon and the Painted desert. And that huge meteor crator. Very unusual beauty in Arizona.



Connecticut

My brother-in-law and his family live there. It’s beautiful in the fall. The most amazing colors and without the horrible accent you have in New Hampshire.



8. New Hampshire

My husband is from New Hampshire. It’s too cold for me there and we rarely go for winter holidays. In the summer it’s nice though and I can surely see why people live there.



7. Alabama

My aunt lives here. I go see her when I can. She lives in a very backwards town complete with confederate flags. She hates it there and I am not fond of her town either. But, go further south and you have the spanish moss and that deep south feel. I love that.



6. Virginia

My dad lives here. He lives on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Gorgeous and just very secluded and peaceful. Going to see him is like going on a little retreat.
