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 tragus piercing

I had my tragus done about 4 or 5 years ago, before it became “popular”. I liked it, but it seemed like it never wanted to heal, always sore, always had some kinda problem so I retired it after about a year and a half. I may still get it redone one day though.

Get my belly button pierced

It wasn’t painful at all when I got it done, just some funky pressure, but afterward I had to hold my shirt off of it, it felt so strange. I’ve had it for years now and it’s fun to have lots of different jewelry for it. I’ve gotten many more piercings since, and the piercing bug hits often. lol

dye my hair

I’ve been plenty of colors as I am a hairstylist by profession, but I recently went to a pretty dark brown for the first time ever. Darkest it’s ever been, and I love it! So much for blondes have more fun.. ;) lol

See all entries ...
