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.

So when we went to the zoo I purposely wore a tank top so I can even out this tan. I knew we would be in the direct sun light all day and I didn’t care about a sun burn. I only regret forgetting to bring my sun block lotion so what’s already tan on me wouldn’t get tanner. So I got a little of a sunburn on my shoulders which is what I needed. It’s not all the way there yet but it’s better than how it was before. whew!

And I got a picture to prove it.

Well I finally went outside today to get some tan and the sun kept coming and going. I don’t think I got much but I did try to speed up the process by putting sunscreen on what has already been tanned, then I put baby oil on the parts I need to have tanned. I wasn’t out there for long but at least I got a start. I am CONVINCED that my skin is permanently marked as this color. That sun burn was around 2 years ago and I still have the tan from it let alone you can definitely see where the sun hit…. and where it didn’t! Oy.
