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.

My nails use to be long and beautiful, but I’ve been under a lot of stress lately and have been biting them. They’re down to the nub now :( I am never going to bite my nails again! 1 month ago

danidee27May 2014 Update

It’s been a long time since I updated here.
I’ve gone through cycles of mild progress followed by biting them down to stubs.
Finally, my nails were long enough to do a gel manicure yesterday. This is what helps the most as they look too nice to pick at, and they won’t chip or break. It seems that I bite them down as much when one breaks as I do out of stress, so keeping my nails strong, manicured and healthy is key to getting out of the biting habit. 2 months ago

I have booked time every week same day same time for me to have a manicure both hands and feet. I will get them cut back at first, if I have no nails I can’t bite them. Its something to lok forward for them too. Maybe, just maybe that will help my nail bitting and my poor abused nails will get to look and feel better. 4 months ago
