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.

Start my own business
I think I am amending this goal...

to OWNING MY OWN BUSINESS! I am looking into opening a day care/after-school center for children/adolescents. This is going to require some serious research and work…more on this later.

Visit Bob Marley's grave site (read all 2 entries…)
Almost there...

this item will be checked off of my list and complete as of February 6th 2009 :) My boyfriend, Khalil, and I booked a trip late last year to vacation in Jamaica this year. We saved for almost 3 months to be able to afford this trip. I sacraficed my weekly manicures and pedicures (haven’t had either since November!). This was a luxury I treated myself to for working hard and volunteering when not doing so. We discussed it off & on for years…and decided one day out of the blue let’s do it! We’re going! I really had my heart set on going in February. Feb. 6th is Bob Marley Day for the entire island of Jamaica. It’s also his birthday (and my little niece Carina too <3). So we are flying out of Philly Feb. 5th. straight flight to Montego Bay. We are staying at Sandals Grande Ocho Rios. On the 6th we are taking a jeep safari from our resort to Bob's grave. I am more than excited! So happy and so anxious to see this beautiful country w/ my "boo", my best friend. I went to Jamaica this past summer 2008 w/ Destiny. We didn't go to St. Ann's parrish (where Bob is) and it wasn't romantic being w/ my best GIRL friend, lol. So this while be Khalil's 1st time going to the island. I will post pics and I'm sure I'll have TONS MORE to blog/write about after actually going and visiting St. Ann's. I am expecting lots of Rastas, hippies, maybe some of the Marleys since it's a big day and not just any other when I will be there! I'm sure it's going to be a good time and a beautiful place. More on this later xo
