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.

Say farewell to 43Things :( (read all 4 entries…)

I will miss you. Or you can find me at popclogs:

Today I leave for my honeymoon, and will not be here for toasts at midnight on the fateful 15th, but you will be in my heart, under the stars in Venezuela.

Much love, my 43t dears!

Go to Aruba
Southwest Airlines

has started offering service to several Caribbean destinations including Aruba. You can check out their interactive route map.

Be forewarned, that route map has limitations. For instance, it shows that one can fly between Austin and Aruba, but makes it hard to figure out that service doesn’t begin until November 8. At this page page you can see when service will begin from your departure city.

It boils down to frequent flyer points + Aruba taxes = inexpensive honeymoon!

43t anniversary next week

My dear 43things, the past 8 years have given me love, hope, friends, and myself. Thank you all, for the amazing people here are what made this community so special.

I am very glad for the experience I had here, and for two more things… that y’all delightful people have invaded popclogs and made it our own, and that @clara-and-clarice created a tool to download all my entries and comments from 43things as its own little website within my computer. Hallelujah!

Here is a link to her creation and instructions on how to back up your things:
