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.

whiten my teeth

I started doing this already! Last night I forgot, but tonight I am going to do both of the strips. I have always had kind of dingy teeth, and this will up my confidence a lot!

wear a bikini next summer

I lost a lot of weight last year, and with all the stress I’ve had this year, I just put it right back on. I need to quit stuffing my face and start moving around. I went from working as a personal trainer to a desk job (ouch!) and so the 500 or so calories I was burning are gone. I also used to play roller derby, and so my calories from the two nights of practice are also gone! Need to get with it!

dye my hair blonde

I think I’m going to do it next week. I went in a month or so ago, but she only did highlights and now I just want to do the whole thing.
