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.

So excited

carpe_diem_for_me is sending me 4 postcards. I cant wait till they get here!!

move to Florida
raised in FL 20yrs

I was born in PA and my fam moved to FL when I was 5. I have to say I love it, its home. BUT if you arent from FL or you havent lived there long you wont like it as much. Its a melting pot, its not like Georgia with its southern hospitality. Many cultures are here and mixed up. If you live in south florida there are a lot of island folks: PR, DR, Cuba, Haiti…if you live in central FL there are a lot of transplants from up north: NY, NJ, PA. Northern FL is less of a melting pot but still there arent many ‘down home’ traditions. FL can be a happening place to live, if you’re in the right place. Its fun and fast growing. It is almost always hot, but our summers are like up north winter. Its so bad you stay inside for a while. It gets a lil chilly in the ‘winter’but there are many times when you’re wearing shorts for christmas. It rains every afternoon at 3pm in July _ and yes the lightning can get bad, but you’re on a peninsula for crying out loud. A lot of the reason people arent friendly and cant drive is because those ppl are from NY or NJ. Duh they cant drive! lol Actual natives (which are few) or people who have lived here for MANY years arent as bad. In my opinion, if you accept all the above, come on down! If not, stay home.

I'd love to!

I’m getting married next year and my fiance and I would like to have postcards from all the southern states so we can use them as table cards at the reception. We travled thru the southern states one time and enjoyed it A LOT and this would be awesome to have.


I want to:
