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.

A few days ago I finally bought myself some much needed new clothes, I really enjoyed going shopping for them and I’m sure i’m going to really enjoy wearing them…this is a fun goal :)


Yesterday I finally brought some new makeup!
I’ve been using foundation that is really pale and a mascara that i’ve had for wayyy too long for a few months now. It feels good to finally have some nice makeup, I just need to make sure I use it regularly now! :)


I cant deny that in the last half of my pregnancy I’ve really neglected my appearance.
At one point when I was feeling unwell for a few weeks I just stayed in my pyjamas or nightdress all day, everyday!
It’s now less than two weeks till the due date for my baby and my concern is that this bad habit that i’ve formed will just continue forever as I struggle with the challenges of being a new mother!
That’s my reason for creating this goal – to remind myself that I should do my best to dress well, that there are 2 little things called makeup and accesories and that I can do more with my hair than simply tie it up sloppily every day.
Realistically, becoming a mother for the first time I’m not going to have time to “always look fabulous!”...the title of this goal is a bit optimistic, but it’s better to aim high than to aim low right?
In short, I just need to start trying a bit harder to look nice, even if it’s just a case of putting a bit of mascara on or wearing a nice outfit. I know it will make me feel good about myself and I’m sure my husband will appreciate it after putting up with me looking terrible for the past few months!
