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.

EszterYour guide to Aqaba, Petra and other places in Jordan

I came to live in Jordan in 2005 and since then I’ve created a website to help others to get the most out of their visit to Jordan.

Justme2575Petra, Jordan

My daughter and I just got back from a 3 day trip to Jordan where we visited Wadi Rum and Petra. It was simply amazing! The people are very friendly and almost all spoke English. 3 years ago


Just visited Jordan including going to Petra for the 4rd time, no matter how many times I go it never gets old its amazing..for non jordanians be prepared to shell out some money 40jd for non arabs, 15jd for arabs from other countries, 1jd if your jordanian..worth the money, piece of advice walk it dont bother with the horse n buggy through the siq better photo ops walking as well, on the way back after totally beat sunburnt and over heated then take one of the horses if you are too exhausted to walk. :)
For those with sensitivity in lungs or get sick a lot WEAR A MASK I got sick all 3 times from the time 6 weeks with broncitis after but small price to pay for going :D

it was amazing! I left a little sad that I hadn’t found the holy grail, though. Especially because I already know that in latin, jehovah begins with an I. 6 years ago

I just moved this to 43places. 7 years ago

yebwGet your butt to Petra, Now!!

That place is amazing. It is a little disheartening—the panhandlers, and the people chizzling of bits of stone to sell to tourist. Also, the insides smell of urine, I guess the panhandlers need a quiet place to relieve themslelves But you will leave awe stricken. I have never seen a place so majestic, so sweepingly impressive. You will leave not just stricken, but assaulted by awe. 9 years ago
