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 was thinking...

and I wonder exactly how you can tell if you’re done with this goal. Would you have to go everywhere in the world, or just travel around the world in a hot air balloon. I don’t know, I guess if you’ve been everywhere that YOU wanted to go to, then maybe you’re done. hmm…just some thoughts

And where I want to go...

STATES: I wouldn’t mind seeing all 50 states actually, but these are the ones I’d really like to visit: Alaska, California, Colorado, Conneticut, Hawaii, Massachusetts, Texas, & Vermont.

NORTH AMERICA: Canada, more of Mexico
SOUTH AMERICA: Chile, Brazil

AFRICA: Egypt, Kenya (or someplace where I can see a safari)

ASIA: China, Japan, India

EUROPE: Greece, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary

- Australia and Russia as well

- Places that I’d like to re-visit: London, Paris, New York City, and Las Vegas

Where I've been...

So far I’ve been to Mexico, The Grand Cayman Islands, England, and France, as well as 19 states. (that’s including Washington D.C.) It’s a start. : )
