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.

run a 10K (read all 2 entries…)

It feels amazing :) now onto the half marathon !

swim with sea turtles
Endangered Logerhead Turles, Zante, Greece

The most surreal experience of my life!

The greek island of Zante has several beaches that I believe are some of the last nesting grounds for this endangered tutrle, after comprehending several ‘turtle watching trips’ we went down to beach only to discover if you were patient and observant then you would see turtles swiming very close to the shore, and with a simple pair of trusty goggles one can swim but meters away from them in cyrstal clear water and experience there “amazingness”

Very recommended!

good luck !

build a stone wall (read all 2 entries…)
As it stands today

Mcarter below mentioned the dry stone walling association, i cannot echo his/her comments enough,

whatever country your in i would hope hey have an authority on dry stone walling which should run cources, i went on one of these for a weekend and leant enough to have a crack at it =)

this took me a good 2 weeks of half days, and as davecm said the perminance of achieving something is amazing =)

I am waiting for some (far too expensive in my opinion) flat topping sontes to go on the top and make it nice and finished. The main bulk of wall is done and awaiting delivery within 2 weeks.

good luck to you all =)

Starting point
