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.

This is what I do to cut my hair, it comes out perfect http://howtohacklife101.blogspot.com/2012/02/how-to-cut-your-own-hair.html 2 years ago


kellraethe best haircuts ever

It all started when I cut my own bangs for a costume. They turned out alright, so I decided to take the next step. My aunt used to cut my hair, so I just kind of copied what I remembered her doing. All I need is a pair of scissors, and preferably two mirrors. I keep my hair really short, and only once did I cut it oddly. My motto is “it’ll grow back”, which, I think is a necessary mindset to have when cutting your own hair. Now that I’ve gotten the hang of it, I have actually played around with different styles. I actually really enjoy the whole process, and I super enjoy not spending the money. 2 years ago


Living In God's Exquisite, Miraculous SufficiencyCan't Remember

I’ve cut my hair before and totally not worth it. Looked totally bad. Just leaving it to the professionals or just letting it grow out. Pulling hair back and up is not a bad thing. 2 years ago


RachaelIt's definitely worth doing

Prices to get just simple cuts over here are staggering. Erik has cut my hair a few times (just a few inches at a time, nothing drastic) to get rid of split ends, but I’d like to do it myself and on a permanent basis. I’ve been watching lots of tutorials on how to do it, and I will cut my hair very soon :) 2 years ago

Nat Attack!Awwwwesome!

So, I did it! Woot woot. I even gave myself layers! All my split ends are gone and it’s so soft again. I’m super happy with the results and now… I kinda want to do it again!! 3 years ago


jessityCutting My Hair!

I’m pretty spontaneous and not too picky about how I look, and to top it off i really hate spending money. So as soon as I was old enough to get away with it(about 16) I started cutting my own hair. Not to say that it looks great every time, but it’s a heck of a lot cheaper than going to a salon and it’s fun! And i feel super indie when I get to tell people that I cut and color my own hair :) 4 years ago


DanT1999Cutting my own hair...

This isn’t something that I had never done before, cutting my own hair. Actually, I have been cutting my own hair since I was a teenager. Since I just did this a couple of days ago, I thought it might be fun to write about it…

I cut my own hair for several reasons. One is that going to a barber or salon is expensive. I was told an average haircut costs about $20 or $30. A second reason is that there’s not much that can be done with my hair. My hair doesn’t really move; if I let it grow out, it just becomes afro-like. Cutting my hair is really not more than just buzzing it. A third reason is that I only have myself to blame if I screw it up. I don’t have to be mad at anyone for poor or incompetent service. I have control over the outcome. A fourth reason is that I don’t either have to make small talk with the barber/stylist (I hate trying to make small talk) or sit awkwardly silent as they’re placing sharp tools near my head.

The only real challenge I’ve had in cutting my own hair is getting the back just right. I use two mirrors, and after years of practice, I think it’s not too bad (see the photo from my most recent haircut). A professional could probably do better, but for free I can’t complain… 4 years ago
