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.

americangirl40Ireland, Dublin & Cliffs of Moher

Almost 2 years later and it’s still on my list of things to do. I am just as excited now as I was when I first decided I wanted to visit Ireland. So now, I have a friend who lives in Dublin and my sister has friends their too. I’m looking at planning my trip for this summer. 2 years ago

americangirl40horseback riding

I’ve been wanting to go horseback riding for a long time. So today, I went to a nearby horse ranch and took a ride. It was the longest 1hr ride. I couldn’t wait for it to be over. I think my issue was I didn’t feel like I was in control of this animal. Horses have a mind of their own unlike an automobile or motorcycle. Would I do it again? Well I’m not sure, but at least I can say I tried it once. 2 years ago

americangirl40Finally, a visit to San Francisco

It was a very nice trip for the 4th of July weekend. I flew into Sacramento Airport since I found the flight and hotel were much cheaper. Met up with a friend on my arrival and the next day we headed out for San Francisco. First destination of course was Fisherman’s Wharf passing through the Embarcadero. The weather was hot, but the atmosphere was great. Fun people, great food and plenty of things to do including live jazz music on the boardwalk. We took a bay cruise, passing under the Golden Gate Bridge and by Alcatraz Island. Also visited the Aquarium by the Bay where amazing sea life can be seen. Was unable to visit the actual Alcatraz Prison because all the tickets were sold out for the day early in the afteroon. Next time, tickets will be purchased online in advance. Later in the evening, I toured downtown SF, passing through China Town, Treasure Island, taking photos of the famous Mrs. Doubtfire house on Steiner Street, TransAmerican Bldg and then traveling down the most windiest road in the world called Lombard street. The trip was really nice and refreshing especially considering I lived in northern CA for a year and never toured San Francisco. I can’t wait to go back.

P.S. on the way back to the airport I visited the Capitol of California which was pretty neat also. 3 years ago
