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.

- The Robots.

learn to walk in high heels
ouch

I wore a pair of shoes with a kitten heel on Friday night and my feet are still killing me on Monday morning! How will I ever work my way up to a gorgeous stilletto if I can’t even handle the tiniest of heels??? Must keep practising…

it hurts

but when u do practice,it’s worth it.when your feet start to hurt sit down and walk a little slower and it won’t hurt so much.

I think it’s inevitable that wearing heels only occasionally hurts your feet. The best solution is the ‘baptism of fire’ – wearing them regularly, ideally 3-plus inch stilettos, and keeping going no matter how much it hurts, until your feet and body adapt, especially your walking style. Then – joy! Sexy, elegant shoes, without pain!
