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.

"This LA Ink marathon is making me want to get another tattoo."

That was what I had updated my Facebook status to. A few minutes later I got a comment from a friend of mine saying that he’d just started his tattoo apprenticeship and he was looking for guinea pigs.
Now, normally that would raise a huge red flag in my head, but considering the facts that I’d seen his art work (which is amazing), and that since he’s a pretty famous musician, being able to say that I was one of his very first clients would be kinda cool, and also that we were talking free of charge here… it was a no-brainer.
It’s not fully completed yet because of the distance to the tattoo shop, but I already love it. I’m hoping to get it finished sometime soon.
