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.

get a toned body

I use to have a good body… then I got off the dance team and graduated high school… got an office job… and well… hello fat body! But I want to start working out and eating better… it’s just so dang hard.

grow my hair back out
talked into cutting it...

I use to have pretty blonde hair that was thick and down to the middle of my back…. a guy talked me into dying it and cutting it off…. BIG MISTAKE!!! Now I miss it so much and growing the hair dye out sucks so bad. It’s been almost three years and it’s still just not right. It’s to my sholders and dyed a redish brown color. It’s growing back a brown color…. gr… but I’m going to get it grown out no matter what.
