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.

Foot Spa and a Movie :)

I am typing this entry while sitting on my couch with my feet in a basin of hot water with a lush bath bomb thrown in (that I got for Christmas. Using it up!)
It smells gorgeous. Like oranges. I intend to use my dead sea salt foot scrub and one of the foot lotions that have been steadily building up in my collection but most remain unused.
I may even paint my toenails. I’m expecting fabulous results, according to the blurb on the foot lotion, my feet should be silky smooth in the morning.
I have not purchased any beauty products in the last 7 days!!



I ♥ Products!

I love Hair and Beauty products. I have everything for face, body, hair, hands, feet, dental, nails..You name it and I’ve got it.
However, these products seem to be more of a collection than part of a beauty routine. They lie unused in my bathroom wondering who the unkempt skank is that keeps crowding their living place with more and more bottles, jars and tubs.
And I gaze in at them, promising myself to use them, to make time to have a beauty routine.
But the time has come to stop spending and start using what I have. I work best with lists or schedules. Beauty routine to follow!
