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.

missmorgan389After no luck...

I decided to reopen this goal. I’ve tried again and again to put makeup on, and for the most part, I can. But there are things that I want to experiment with to put it on my face in a certain way that will look really good, so I think this Summer I’m going to practice and see how it looks 2 years ago

MeJeanMake up... more than just a thing to cover face

The deal with this make up thing is that it cost money, just one tiny thing cost more 2 possible lunches… so I got a little extra on the month and reminded about this goals, I was able to obtain the basic to start getting used to the idea of wearing this things on my face.
I have seen some shows in which they give then a make-over and have paid a little amount of attention to be able to know what to do first.
Best thing ever to get from this time, would have been the indication to put on your normal toning and/or cream on and then apply make-up, why? well because after that the tone of your face actually best than expected! 2 years ago
