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.

The Regime Week 3

So this week is the 3rd week of the regime. Last week, week 2 the website said I’d have another breakout and I did. I have kept up with the system….which has made my skin feel better but it doesn’t look a whole lot better in my opinion. My forehead and cheeks have been behaving better….its my wretched chin. It never seems to clear.

Consolidating to one payment

Well, before I got married I had about 1,000 in credit card debt…then you add a wedding and it added about 5,000 in debt. We’ve got it down from there….but then we had to add my husband’s as well We’ve decided that we’re consolidating both our debts into one monthly payment instead of 5 cards.

It should make it easier to make larger payments on one card instead of small payments on each card. Plus that means there is only one minimum payment. We’re trying to through most of our extra “fun” money at it and pay off all our debt by June. I think we can do it….I’ll keep you updated.

Been on the "real" regime about a week and.....

Well I saw initial improvement with the regime products but hit a point where I began to break out again. According to the website this is normal for moderate acne so I guess I should just keep on trying….but I’d really like to know what I’m doing wrong…cuz it seems like everyone else has IMMEDIATE results.

Honestly, I’d just like to feel pretty for like 1 moment of my pregnancy and my skin is stealing that feeling away.
