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.

gemmc24 is nothing!

Just saw your post Christie and I have to say I turned 30 in December and I still feel about 23-I think I mentally stopped there! It can seem a bit intimidating at times, but you know what, things just get better and better. So enjoy each day and enjoy being 24 and 25 all they way up to 105! 7 months ago


gemmcHakuna Mutata!

I had planned on going to see The Lion King in Dublin as I’m from Ireland and it seemed like a more feasible plan, as I knew the show was coming to the Bord Gais theatre for a stretch. However, myself and two friends happened to visit London in March 2013 when another mutual friend of ours was studying over there, and we took the opportunity to go see a musical. I’m a big fan of musicals-give me anything from Les Mis to Rogers and Hammerstein numbers, but one of my friends ain’t a lover of musicals; however she has always liked the Lion King since she first saw it as a kid (like myself). Thus it was the Lion King that we secured tickets for. We bought them in Leciester Square at one of those booths that do good deals. We did end up in the upper upper tier at the Lyceum Theatre-my vertigo kicked in big time getting to my seat, but once I was sitting I was fine. Do bring your glasses if you get one of these seats though , because although it was a bird’s eye view, the stage is quite far away. They do provide mini binoculars with which to check things out in close up which is handy for this show in particular, as the costumes are outstanding and worth the some close attention. It really is a fun musical; naturally you would want to be a fan of the Lion King in the first place to enjoy it. All the classic songs are present and there are plenty new pieces too. None of those beat the original tunes however. We really enjoyed our trip to the Lyceum. Sweets and drinks are quite expensive, but you may as well go the whole hog while your there-Pumbaa style. 7 months ago

gemmcI've purchased a number of volumes of short stories this Christmas..

thanks to my trusty new Kindle. These works are free online, so handy as they seem to be totally out of print. Yay I’m getting there..going to read the short stories and then start on the Anne series next. 22 months ago

gemmcI have bought a number of the books..

but they are quite hard to come by-I think I will end up purchasing most of them online. Those which I have already bought are editions which I happened to come by second-hand in various bookshops in Ireland. They are old but nice editions; some from the ‘50s and some older. I’m thinking of getting a Kindle for my birthday/Christmas, but I would still like to read the Anne series the old-fashioned way. 1 year ago

I visited Bath last year and it is so pretty-I think it would be great to actually visit the spa there, it sounds wonderful. I agree it would be a lovely place to live :)
