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.

Gypsy is not really around much anymore...

create an outer style that is a true reflection of me (read all 12 entries…)

Ah shoes. Yet another thing I hate shopping for. I have big feet. They’re long and they’re wide… not really made for pretty, girly, fashionable shoes!

Friday, my Diva besties and I had a another Diva Day. Once every 3 months or so, we all take a day off of work to dedicate to ourselves and each other. It was Shelley’s turn to organise our day (we all take turns), so because we are always in awe of her bargain hunting ways, she took us around to all the shops she frequents. Second hand shops, Salvos, St Vinnies… as well as a fabulous organic cafe for breakfast and our favourite haunt for lunch. She even had the “emergency esky” in the boot with a bottle of non-alcoholic bubbles and 3 glasses, a couple of cans of Pepsi Max, some ginger beer, water and chocolate all on ice!

Anyway – back to the shoes! She took us to a Diana Ferrari outlet… and I am IN LOVE! I ended up buying FOUR pairs of shoes! Amazing! I even bought some cute heels! So, I now have three pairs of court shoes – a tan coloured pair that are kind of mary-jane like and two shiny pairs, one dark blue and the other a dark red, and a pair of black sling back peep toe heels with a white/ cream trim… I’m feeling good!!
