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.

AmelicaNew brochure

I have just finished creating the layout for a brochure for a personal project. I was surprised with how good to the eyes it was! What made it different from my previous crappy works was the use of good color combination. I used to select colors almost at random, mixing and matching until I found one that is quite satisfactory—or until my eyes get tired from frustration – but they never turned out to be “wow, that’s a really attractive design!”

What I didn’t know back then was that there was such a thing as color theory. Colors don’t have to be matched by trial and error. If you’re like me, and you don’t have a natural flair for colors, you can rely on that theory. No, I didn’t study the theory, and I still don’t have a grasp of its basics (nor do I intend to acquire such). However, given that there’s a color theory, someone out there must have already developed a tool using this theory. And, for this brochure, I used such a tool. It’s called “Color Scheme Designer 3.” That tool helped me transform my brochure from a boring gray into a luscious piece of eye candy. 7 months ago

Complete the freelance project I’ve been hired for, creating a simple, effective logo for a private company.

Despite being an art major, I know next to nothing about design programs and am teaching myself along the way. 13 months ago
