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.

Model Mayhem :)

I made myself a page back in November and have been doing trade photo shoots to build up a portfolio. It’s working out really well so far, my dad insists that I be escorted though since I’m still 17 but it doesn’t bother me. I’m still going to university – I’ve already set my heart on Newcastle – but once I pull together a decent port I could do this part time and start getting paid work! :)

I had my eureka moment – at last :)
I pulled together a few rough images on the computer and stuck them together akwardly on Paint last night, and I’ve just finished a sketch based on that now! So excited, it’s perfect! It combines my creeping ivy idea with some gorgeous symbols that have some kind of meaning for me. It’s to go on my right side, starting at my hip and ascending up my rib cage slightly.

Easily covered, easily exposed. I made it myself (the sketch is terrible considering I failed GCSE art but I’m sure the artist can refine it :P) so yeah, I’m more than happy… just need to wait until my birthday in November now!
