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.

tastytreats1It's NOT worth it, don't do it. READ THIS BEFORE YOU DO IT

You may think this is a good idea, but let me tell you – it’s not. I was a silly teenager who wanted to be different, and now I’m older with a horrible scar on my face. I was silly enough to have both my upper and lower lip pierced so that’s two ugly scars. I know what you’re thinking “I will never take it out blah blah” but you will eventually, and the longer you leave it the worse the scarring will be. Do you want to end up with an ugly mark on your face for the rest of your life just to look fashionable as a teenager? Not just scarring on the outside – there is scarring on the inside as well. It will leave a big lump of scar tissue on the inside as it’s healing, and it will stay there even after you take it out. If we’re talking about a bottom lip piercing you will not be able to resist the urge to play with the flat back of the labret with your teeth, meaning now I have one front tooth which is more worn down that the other. Just remember, regrets are for later. Do you really want to be left with an ugly scar until the day you die? Oh, and not to mention the £50 I spend on them which definitely could have been spent better. 3 years ago

tastytreats1not worth it

I thought about it before getting it done, not really a spur of the moment thing but turned out to be too much trouble than what it was worth. Now I’ve taken it out it’s left a HORRIBLE scar right smack bang in the middle of my face. You probably just think “I’ll never take it out, so it doesn’t matter about the scar” but you will eventually, and the longer you leave it – the worse the scarring is going to be. It also leaves a horrible lump inside your mouth when you get it pierced known as the scar tissue – nobody told me about that so now I’m left with a horrible scar and a gross lump. I’ve learnt my lesson from being a silly teenager and now I’ve to be reminded of it for the rest of my life with a mark on my face for everyone to see. 3 years ago
