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.

okay…i made it through six classes. i won’t go into the excuses for missing the rest, but three of them are valid. i might take it again this summer depending on my class/homework load.

always keep my camera close so i can take more pictures
camera fun...

now that i have a tiny camera that fits in my pocket, i take it everywhere. i’ve taken fun shots while out dancing and even smuggled my camera into the rapture show in my boot because they were searching bags!

yay for the absentee ballot!
now i have no excuse to not vote…

dress up for Halloween

i’m not feeling creative enough to make something and
everything i’ve looked at online is just slutty and/or boring.

one more piercing

okay…technically i got three today, but they’re all in my ears and that’s not really what i had in mind. so i’ll leave this until i decide if i’m done or not.
