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.

Learn Spanish (read all 4 entries…)

I-ve been in Honduras 7 months now, and… I have learnt Spanish. I can speak it and understand it, but as I-ve never formally studied it, writing is more difficult.

eat a pizza in italy
My first

was in Napoli. I hadn’t eaten since breakfast and it was now about 6pm, and I had spent the day in the sun in Pompeii. There were two very similar pizzas on the menu, with the exception that one had ham, and one did not. That being the only difference, the two pizzas were the same price. I ordered the one without ham, because I do not eat meat. By the time the pizza arrived, I was starving! Unfortunately, the chef had put ham on the pizza! Either he didn’t understand, or he thought he was being nice. The pizza was very good anyway, if not a little burnt.

The second was in a small town, near Casino, about one hour north of napoli, two hours south of rome. A friend ordered it so it came in a box and didn’t look gourmet by any standards, but was the best pizza I have ever eaten!

I had some pizza in Pisa and Rome also, both of which were decent. In Rome you pay per 100grams.
