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.

Live acne free and help others to too (read all 7 entries…)
Better and better

Currently, I’m about 98% clear (I have two pimples, but they’re vanishing fast). I’m not exactly sure what’s caused this but there are a few things I’ll mention. And, I’m not considering this “done” because this can just be a clear era that’ll pass—I don’t know.
First and foremost, I changed my diet drastically. I don’t drink soda or coffee; I don’t eat cookies, candy, cake, pie, (etc., though of course it’s fine occasionally); I don’t eat red meat. And, with every meal I include fruits or vegetables. I also drink a hell of a lot more water. I think that’s a huge (!) factor in my clear skin.
Second, I’ve been taking a lot of supplements that are supposed to contribute to clearer skin: vitamins A, E, B5, C, and Zinc and milk thistle.
Third, I have been using zinc oxide topically, which I know for a fact has made a tremendous difference. It’s brightened my old scars-helped loads just “disappear”-and it’s shortened the healing time of current pimples. They now go away overnight, sometimes within hours.
Also, I still use olive oil and honey.
Hope this helps someone :)


this is just a test cheering back. Eventually.
