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.

56. Lebanon

Thank you Lebanon for visiting today.

The Lebanese Republic is a country in the East Mediterranean, with a rich history.

Summer and winter sports are popular in Lebanon because of the unique geography, a little like southern California. In fall and spring it is possible to go skiing in the morning and swimming in the Mediterranean Sea in the afternoon. Lebanon has six ski resorts. Canoeing, cycling, rafting, climbing, swimming, sailing and caving are among the other common leisure sports in Lebanon. The Beirut Marathon is held every fall, and it has become a tradition for many to participate in costumes or outlandish clothing.

Beirut is the capital of Lebanon.

55. Trinidad and Tabago

I am late in posting this….I’ve been a bad 43 thinger lately. But, thank you Trinidad and Tobago for visiting back in April.

The Republic of Trinidad and Tobago is in the southern Caribbean, lying off the coast of Venezuela and Grenada.

Carnival in Trinidad and Tobago is the most significant event on the islands’ cultural.

This Island Country is also the birthplace of the limbo.

:) I want to come visit.
