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.

ErrocaSo I finally got ideas!

1. Animals silhouettes bracelet – of all animals that are under humans’ animals utilization – an elephant, a cow, a pig, a horse, a rabbit, a chicken, a lion, a cat, a turtle, a monkey, a bird and a mouse.

2. “Not tested on animals” logo. It will look like as a rabbit head above a silhouette of a triangle.
I’m not aure about it’s position, wether I’ll tattoo it on the back of my neck or on the right side of the bottom of my back.

I want to start with the first one, and I’ll do it on the winter. 4 months ago

I did it 3 times. the first one when I was 17 on my back (a tribal), the second in Miami on my neck and the last one few months ago in Melbourne, Australia on my ribs. It is not really painful and I love them . 5 months ago

I completely forgot about my 43things account until today. I had a look at what goals I had listed and lo and behold, I had accidently completed one!

I got a tattoo just over a month ago. I was in Portland, Oregon,
USA, and spending my last few weeks overseas after leaving home almost a year before. I had mulled over a few ideas whilst I was overseas and finally decided on one. My decision did feel a bit rushed but I really didn’t want to come home without a tattoo!

I’m really happy with what I got and how it turned out. It was done at Atlas Tattoo’s her were really easy going. I was a bit nervous the environment and artist’s would be a bit mucho and scary but it was very laidback and comfortable – I highly recommend them.

I haven’t told anyone at home about my tattoo as it feels very much a part of my time overseas.

PS. The attached image is not my tattoo. 5 months ago
