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.

Laura BloomfieldCroagh Patrick for me

I have travelled home to Castlebar now for many years…..I call it home but I have never lived there. It is where my mother is from and I have fond memories (happy and sad) of my Granny, Aunts and cousins – I feel such love for the place and it makes me feel like I am travelling home when I visit.

Croagh Patrick has always towered over the West with its perfect triangle shape. I have heard stories of pilgrimage and climbs on Weddding days, on the day of a loved ones funeral and it holds a special challenge. I have never climbed it but I have photos and paintings of it.

I want to climb it before I am 40 – so I have two years to get Croagh Patrick fit.

So that is the next goal – get some mountain climbing experience before I am next back home….. 2 years ago


dp4jcRespect for my ancestors

I’ve been interested in my heritage as far back as I can remember and with the advent of the Internet it has made doing research so much easier. I would appear that one arm of my family were starved out of Ireland by the British back in the 1830’s. I early on in the year I visited Westport which was the last recorded place I have of my ancestors in Ireland. I was amazed to see a snowcapped mountain on the outskirts of town which I discovered to be Croagh Patrick. Croagh Patrick is a place of pilgrimage and one day I vow to return to climb the mountain as hommage to my ancestors.

Though my ancestors are recorded as having used Westport as a staging post to leave Ireland I am lead to believe they actually came from a village about 40 miles to the south east. Alas there is no further trace of them before Westport. 5 years ago
