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.

redeyedpumpkinWhy do you have to give every single post a title? This is tedious.

SO anyways, those dreadlock braids didn’t last a month. Needless to say I was not pleased with them or my hairdresser who had said they should last about six months. Those things just kept sliding right off my hair.
Anywho, since then I have changed hairdressers and now my hair has been relocked and is looking much more decent. 3 months going and I’m now beginning to feel like my dreads will be beautiful. 19 months ago


Put on dread lock braids that are supposed to stay on for six months. That should be interesting to see. So scrap my 2 month check, and lets reschedule for august. 22 months ago

sigma316Dread Journey

What a difference a year. Last year I was forced to cut my hair. It was for my career. Well I found a new job and I started my Dread journey March 2011. They are coming along very nice. I love them. There is something almost spiritual about the journey. I will upload some pictures. 3 years ago
