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.

I went to Russia with a school group last summer and spent the month of July in Saint Petersburg, studying at the state university.
It was kind of awesome and awkward at the same time. There are some cultural things that I found hard to get used to, but that’s for you to find out for yourself, grasshopper. 4 years ago


I hope that I will be studying abroad in the future. 4 years ago


After seeing and hearing about AFP’s trip there, I’ve been inspired. It’s a beautiful country and Russian boys are just too cute :) 5 years ago


I have become a bit more serious about this idea of late. I’ve even decided that I might learn Russian later in life. 5 years ago


I just simply love Russian musicians and writers. I want to visit the places where these extraodinary individuals were born, raised and lived their lives to the full. How amazing and inspirational!! 6 years ago


I had always dreamed of going back to my great grandparents’ country and was able to fulfill that dream with an opportunity in May 2008. It was one of the most awe inspiring times in my life (although Moscow is considered the most expensive city in the world and I can understand why). First, it was the first time in my life where everyone could pronounce my last name (Russian origin) and all of the dinner reservations were put under my last name (people who have Eastern European last names and live in US regions that are predominately English/Irish I think can relate). Second, I was able to have all the “home” food my grandparents made when I was growing up and haven’t had since they past away. Lastly, to be able to visit the churches of my grandparents and being struck by the beauty of them made me so emotional that brought me to tears (I even brought the Russian Orthodox Cross that my grandmother gave me as a child on this trip). 6 years ago
