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.

date (read all 3 entries…)

Well almost 2 years’ now since I have been on a date. I’m just laughing.

get breast implants (read all 2 entries…)
Not any more

I have decideded that I need to love me for me and not hope for some plastic inserts that people think ‘looks’ good. I’ve worked on way to many women who have on-going back pain. As well as their doc’s not telling them pertinent information about recovery and a year later they are posturally a wreck because they have no idea the extra weight changes their center of gravity. So I’m going to enjoy running and playing sports and not having the added back pain.

Open a massage business

What I want this business to be… Not out of my home for sure. Money is the key limiting factor at this point.

Figure Competition (read all 5 entries…)
Well I have done 3

Really this competition is based from show to show. Factors of what are judged are changed that frequently that weeks, and weeks of prep and you have no idea what the judges are loong for exactly. As much dedication as a show takes and the prioroty level can really be a let down.
Overall I had fun, but not sure if I will do another :)
