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.

It’s still growing, but I haven’t cut it (other than to trim the yuck bits) in more than a year. It’s down to my shoulders now. I am pretty happy with it and I’ll keep growing it out and out and out until I decide it’s time for something new.

still growing

I haven’t cut it yet. My hair is just barely touching my shoulders now. I long for the day that it hangs down my back. Sigh!


My hair continues to grow unabated. I’ll probably needa trim soon to even it up and avoid that awkward mullet look.

this is not terribly difficult

I got a trim last week, to even things out a bit, but otherwise, my hair just keeps on growing. Woohoo! Go me! :D


It’s growing. Need to get a cut to even it out. But it’s growing! Wheeeeeeeeeeeee! :D
