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.

travel around the world (read all 7 entries…)

So I’ve added a few more spots I’ve visited on my world map. Seems like Bali and especially Gili islands has been the bestest place I’ve seen on Earth beach-holiday-wise. I really wuld enjoy going back there some time… Singapore on the other hand was the best ever place i have seen urban-wise. Really fantastic.

The next trips planned for now:
A short visit in Greece (comming soon)
A winter holiday in Vietnam-Cambodia (I think this will finish off my Asian map for now at least because other continents need to be seen).

Looking forward to those two trips big time now :)

Swim with dolphins (read all 3 entries…)
i missed my chance on it :(

I had totally forgotten this goal of mine! i actually had a very good chance to swim with dolphins this year. we visited India and one day we were walking the beach when this crowd of dolphins came by. my friends jumped into the ocean and i stayed on the shore. could have made this goal come true, huh? well, maybe next time :) maybe on our holiday in Bali? :)
