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.

alymicfernI can't wait to try this!

I have everything I need…except time! This process takes so much preparation! First you need to prepare the paste and let it sit for 24-48 hours. Then you will need to prepare your skin by making sure it is free of oils and very dry before drawing the design, which you are supposed to be careful not to let crack and keep on the skin for 8-12 hours (for best results). When you are finally allowed to remove the paste, you are supposed to keep the design out of water and sun for 12 hours, as well as avoid using soap for 24 hours. Now who, may I ask, has the time for all of this?! Regardless, I am determined to try it the hard way before resorting to the brown SHARPIE method, which is rumored to be just as nice and obviously far easier! I’ll keep you posted. 8 years ago
