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.

I can’t believe my last entry for this goal was over a year ago now. Crazy. I’m actually going in for a haircut tomorrow. Just a trim though. Got some bad split ends. Eww. I feel like my hair hasn’t really been growing because of the split ends. Bah. My hair is about 6-8 inches long from my shoulders down. Sweet. I’ll have to take pictures soon and post them. Not sure when I’ll mark this completed. Still feel like I’ve got more growing to do. Funny how in my last entry, it was basically the same. Me, complaining about my split ends and what not. haha.

Doing pretty good.

I normally end up getting a haircut in the summer because the long hair makes me too hot. Well, I didn’t this year. It’s pretty long so far for me. It’s past my shoulders by uh.. 5 inches maybe. I really need to get a trim though. Split ends are bad and plus it’s better for your hair to get frequent trims rather than growing it out and then going in for a trim where they’ll end up taking off WAY more than you want. Anyways, I think probably by next summer it should be long enough to mark this goal complete, but hopefully I will keep on growing it out. I’ve always really loved really long hair. It’s so pretty.
