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.

Dress Lolita
Now I just have to WEAR the dress...

I bought a perfect dress from the website If anyone is planning on buying a lolita dress, that should be the first place they look 0.0 Quality, great designs, good fabric, comfortable, fast shipping, affordable, quite honestly the most perfect Lolita online store I have ever laid eyes upon XD
I’ve had the dress for a while, and a mini top hat, now I just have to wear it in public >w< I’m planning on buying more gothic lolita clothes and eventually wearing them a lot of the time ^^

dye my hair blue

Having blue hair was fun times XD I’ll admit, the dye got on my clothes and such, and dye would get everywhere when I showered, but having blue hair was soooo worth it owo Having your friend return a sweater to you, not because they knew it was yours, but because it had blue hairs all over it, was one of the best parts XD
