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.

I did it!

I didn’t actually donate to locks of love…I donated to beautiful lengths ( because for them you only have to donate 8 inches. Actually, my friend’s mom cut my hair and she ended up cut off ten inches anyway :(
But it was a good thing to do…I thought I would cry, but I wasn’t really upset. This is definitely worth it!

good tip!

my hair is actually 15 inches. I was on the wigs for kids website (even though I plan to donate to locks of love) and I saw that they say to put your hair in pigtails because that will give you more hair. And it does! I don’t kno, u probably all thought of this and I’m the last one to announce this, like always, but it’s a good tip anyways.

locks of love

I haven’t had my haircut in years. I really want to donate it, but my hair’s never been that short. Right now my ponytail is 13 inches, but I want it to get to 20 inches so it’ll still be long when I cut it, but I think my hair stopped growing. = ( I’m hoping it’ll grow and I’ll cut it in July. I don’t know if I should because a lot of people say Locks of love only uses some of the hair they receive.
