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.

grilledcheezeIts coming along...

I have still been buying a lot of thesse products, but at a more reasonable rate. Well – I guess it isn’t that reasonable since I already have lots of everything!

I’m down to about 3 or 4 shampoos, 5 lotions… the rest I’m not too sure about. But, I have got all of these things organized and in proper containers. Its just a matter of using them and only keeping 1-2 of each on hand at a time.

To give you an idea, I’ve used about 150 products up since the last time I wrote an entry. 6 years ago

This might fit in with “get organized”, but I have so many lotions, creams, sprays, gels, powders, etc etc. I basically collect them! I’ve got so many that I’ve opened once, used, and then put back in my closet to use the next one. Or even worse – ones I haven’t even used at all. People always buy me these things, or I’ll end up picking up something new cause I’m a sucker for marketing/advertising.

To give you an example – I counted not too long ago and I have about 17 Shampoos, 9 Perfumes, 10 Body Sprays, 12 Bars of Soap, 6 Body Washes… I even have hair dye sitting around that I might never get around to using!

So, my goal is to stop buying and start using! I need to get my “collection” down to a reasonable size. 7 years ago
