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.

funkyjazzmonkeyAyiti - Land of Mountains

We would spend about a month at a time. We went once the summer I turned six, then three years in a row when I was around 14. We stayed near the coast, away from the noise of the capital. It was great; got a break from pollution, from the noise and bustle of the states, even a break from English!

Then a long hiatus of 9 nine years, due to lack of money here and political craziness over there. Then, last December I got to go again, this time for a week in the capital. Probably spoke more French in that week than in a year of college-level French. And I had forgotten just how mountainous the country is – I don’t think there is anywhere in Haiti you can be and not see mountains. It was wonderful. 6 years ago


I used to go there often when I was younger. Then my dad wouldn’t go as often. Then things got really bad down there so he just put it as an option to do when he was dead. But I’m hoping to go to see my aunt on my moms side and my dad family. I do miss these people. 10 years seems a bit too long. Plus theres some food there I’m DYING to eat again. lol 6 years ago


Our favorite place in Haiti was in the Hammock 7 years ago
