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.

The plan is to spend a couple of these days in Cleveland :)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed...

for a February, 2007 visit :)


great reason to visit this area- Tartsy lives here! ”Innocent on the outside with a chewy freaky center.” And caring, and witty, and supportive, and…

It’s beginning to look like a single visit to Cleveland isn’t going to be enough :)

Another place on my list

Cuyahoga Valley near Cleveland is one of the newest national parks, just designated in 2000.

A visit there is necessary to complete this goal.


Honesty tends to get me in trouble, but…

The main reason that Cleveland is now high on my priority list as a vacation destination.

One of my best friends, Surly.

I just added

Cleveland to my TripWatch locations on

One obvious choice

for a visit to Cleveland would be the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Seems like a “must see” attraction!

I learned

about the great beer made at Great Lakes Brewing Co from a coworker a few years ago. It isn’t available here in Denver, but I have family in the Midwest that I visit every year, so I pick some up every time that I’m out there.

One of my sisters has been to the brewery, but I never have. I think that it’s about time.

And since I’ve never been to Cleveland, I might as well see whatever else is interesting in that area. I already have a couple of things in mind ;) but I’m open to suggestions too.

TG has gotten 31 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
