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.

Ivymere finds strength...somewhere, somehow

Dress better (read all 15 entries…)

Apparel-wise, I feel like I’ve definitely thrown in a lot of classic, basic pieces mostly because I started working for a corporation that’s very classic and mainstream. Because of their dresscode, I’ve started shopping for pieces that can double for work in order to save money and not have a completely different wardrobe. So on my off days, sometimes it’s just easier to throw a basic piece on and go for it. I don’t have any dressy pieces that I can just throw on anymore. I really need to fix that, but I’ll see when I can afford to shop.

However, in the accessories department, I think I’ve definitely blossomed over the last year. My scarf collection has tripled and my jewelry collection is awesome. I definitely would like more pieces but I’m happy with what I do have. I LOVE rings. This totally new to me because I used to be uncomfortable wearing more than one or two delicate bands. Now I’m doing crazy cocktail rings that could take someone’s eye out and doing up to 3 on one hand at once. It’s so fun! I’m loving layering necklaces as well!
