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.

As myself

Because channeling my inner Marilyn Monroe wasn’t it for me. I’m not her, nor am I like her. She had no real trust in anyone but herself-she’s strong. But I’m a lot of things she wasn’t. Stronger because I trust in others and put myself out there to risk it.
She strikes me as the beautiful type who only took the most calculated of risks in which she knew people would still adore her.
I’m not here to be adored. I’m not sure what I am here for-but that isn’t it.
I want to channel my own brand of sexiness outside of Victoria’s Secret models, vampire fetishes, blonds with tans and etc. I am not exactly typical but not exactly exotic, which has always made me feel cute enough, pretty, sometimes even beautiful. But never sexy. I need to stop comparing myself and decide what would make me feel the strength and power that comes with sexy and separates me from being cute-and channel it. Then release it on the world!
Not really the place for an evil laugh maybe with feeling sexy, but I felt it there. Maybe that too is part of my inner sexy? (Or my inner weirdness, which is fine and dandy good too!)
