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.

Had an amazing time in Cardiff Wales. The country is so beautiful and despite what some people told me prior to going. The welsh people ARE very friendly, kind, and bubbly with a real love for life! :) 13 months ago

I wish to visit the place that my father speaks of so fondly. It was his home as a child and my ancestral homeland along with Japan. 4 years ago

RhoswenThe magic of Wales

I am very interested in the Celtic culture & history, that’s one of the reasons I would like to go to Wales. The other one is that I know that the nature is beautiful there. I am curious to hear Welsh spoken too. I’ve been to Scotland once and to Ireland several times, so it seems like Wales should be next on my list.

Perhaps I could take the ferry from Rosslare to Fishguard (Abergwaun) next time I am in Ireland. That way I could get a nice ferry trip too. I am not sure when this could happen – not so likely this year, but possibly in 2011. 4 years ago

I took the train from London and we had an overnight stop at Bristol….for 4 hours. My 2 companions slept and I read a novel for class. It was a great adventure.

We spent the first day (arrived super early) in Cardiff, which I think was fun, but just perfect for a one day thing. Cardiff Castle is decently fun but I liked wandering the place.

We spent one and a half days in Pembroke – Trefin to be exact. We explored a bit of St. David’s, where we did a coastal walk, very fun (another friend had joined us by this time). The ice cream there is DELICIOUS and I tried Welsh Cawl.

The last day, I ordered pheasant meat, which was exciting, and someone else got rabbit meat (which I tried a bite of). Had ice cream again – was delicious. :D 7 years ago
