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.

Last summer

I was at the beach with my family, and there were two just off shore, they are beautiful creatures, but my family who is all from FL, just called them Sea Cows and didn’t seem very interested. Oh well, I liked it.

travel through Italy (read all 2 entries…)
Incredible journey

wish we were doing it again. Our favorite place to be was Cinque Terre. Followed by Siena and Florence. Rome, you have to see, but you only have to see it once, it is kind of a beating.

dunk a basketball(on a 10 ft rim)

once in high school, we played at a gym where one goal was slightly lower and i dunked it there. But never since, so i have been working out my legs and I can already touch the rim, so i figure if i lose about 15 pounds and keep my legs working out, I will get there.

climb every 14er in the USA
4 down

I have four down, but has been a couple of years now since my last attempt on one. But it sure is amazing everytime you get to the top.
