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.

Visit Bulgaria

Well … I was born in Bulgaria, so instead of just saying “Come here, it`s worth it!” I will try to give you some extraordinary trip ideas. It seems like all the tourists go to Veliko Tarnovo, Plovdiv, Bansko and Sunny Beach. To start with Veliko Tarnovo – it`s definatelly wonderfull there but if you have enough time after visiting Tsarevets,the Samovodene market place and some museums, try to go to the university(it`s on the top of a hill and has a breathtaking view of the city). Close to Veliko Tarnovo is the town Gabrovo – two things to do there – visit the open-air museum for Crafts Etar, and the HOUSE OF HUMOUR AND SATIRE (Dom na humora i satirata in bulgarian cause I`m not sure if it would be written in English ). From Gabrovo you can easyly get to Kazanluk, using The Shipka passage through Stara Planina – famous for rose oil, and archaeology (The valley of tracian kings) – find some info about it, it`s all on the internet, and you won`t be dissapointed. Kazanlak is close to Plovdiv and I think there`s nothing to say about Plovdiv as it`s really known – just don`t forget to buy a card just for Plovdiv because there arent many signs and you might get lost.
Now about Sunny Beach – believe it or not very few bulgarians go there – same about Zlatni Pyasuci (Golden sands? I don`t know if they translate it)if you want something unforgettable and you don`t mind not sleeping in a five-star hotel go to Ahtopol, Ravda, the bungalows close to the mouth of Kamchiq river (but there are no hotels/ shops / bars there so it`s for those who want calmer, uneventfull holliday) or Shabla. And dont forget to visit Nos Kaliakra – its magnificent.
about skiing – Bansko is a wonderfull place, but you can wait up to 40 minutes to get to the lift and it`s expensive so if you want to see something wilder, cheaper and without waiting at the lifts prefer Dobrinishte – its close to Bansko and only bulgarians go there. The tracks are fewer than in Bansko but they are enough for me – about 11 km long here is the website of Dobrinishte – . Also the prices are lower there – if a coffee in BAnsko costs 5 leva, in Dobrinishte is 50 stotinki (ten times lower prices).

So thats it from me and sorry for any mistakes cause my English sucks.
