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.

not so fab any more

Well, wow have I gotten off track. I am so frumpy now! I’ve totally given up. I think its because my boyfriend makes me feel like a tub of worthless shit! I need to get back to trying to make myself feel good and be fabulous again!

Photo shoot, fashion show, etc..

I did a photo shoot, and my picture was up in a gallery! I went to the opening, and it was really strange seeing people standing there staring at my photo… I felt so proud,its so lovely! I had on killer shoes! I was shmoozing with artists, I felt great! It was alot of fun!
I’m also going to be a model in a fashion show! This Saturday!I’m so excited! This is going to be so fun. And I am going to be fabulous!

I was fabulous in LA

I wore high heels every day, I carried my Fabulous purse with me. I felt good about myself every day, I never felt fat or ugly. A couple times I actually felt “over dressed”. Its usually the opposite! I bought a really cute shirt, I bought some great shoes. I really tried to have fun and feel good. It worked! We went to Goth night at This incredible bar…and I actually had 3 people comment on my hair being cute, and one girl in the bathroom actually told me I was so beautiful! Wow! That really made me feel good. I guess if you feel good, then you look good to others, its all in the way you feel that you project out to others!

being fab!

I wrote on my bathroom mirror: BE FABULOUS! Every time I see it , it reminds me to feel good about myself etc…I have started putting on my make up and doing my hair naked! This is really unusual for me. I have never been one to walk around naked at home…even when no one is there. Right after sex I usually put clothes on right away. This is really helping me to feel more comfortable with my body and feel better about myself!
SYNCRONICITY: Going to ATC, with my friend Les, and seeing the “Fabulous” purse! It actually said “Fabulous” on it!He bought it for me!

DoveVader has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.
