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.

Stop Picking At My Face

I today for the first time googled this problem I have been having for over 8 years. I am a 25 year old woman, and it has become a problem. People say that I am beautiful, I know I can be, but I end up needing to wear more makeup than I would like and I am NEVER able to wear the cute clothes I would like to. Rarely can I wear a tank top or strappy dress, and if I do, I have to wear my hair down to cover the damage I have done and continue to do from picking. I can’t beleive how many other people share this problem. I relate to walking by the mirror and having to stop each time. It’s especially bad when I have something to do and am procrastinating. It makes sense hearing that it is an OCD behavior. I have never been diagnosed, but I wouldn’t be surprised. Thanks for everyone on here opening up about their problem. It is always nice to know that we are not alone. I am going to keep checking in as I hope to use this site as a resource to get a handle on this. Peace, and love!
