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.

redecorate my bedroom (read all 2 entries…)

I am seriously going interior design-crazy! i’ve been up all night looking at paint colors and different themes, and now i’m leaning more to painting my walls a bright teal, and all of my bedding and deco being black and white. I’m thinking of hanging a huge poster of marilyn monroe on the wall right above my bed, instead of the fleur de lis. I’m so torn..I’m worried that the pink, will grow old and will become more of a pink that i had as a child. ughhh!

redecorate my bedroom (read all 2 entries…)

I finally stopped procrastinating, set a date with my boyfriend, which is this saturday, to paint my room! :) After looking at many different colors, and themes, I decided hot pink is way too overpowering for my small room. So I chose a sort of eraser/bubblegum/ballerina pink. Its gorgeous :) I’m doing my entire room in a french theme, painting all the furniture black, and stenciling a black fleur de lis on the wall that my bed is pushed against. i’m buying a new vanity set, and am going to get a framed poster of the eiffel tower. i’m so excited! my rooms finally going to look the way I want it to :)
