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.

johnny_ice77Finally doing this for cancer charity

Ok I’ve wussed out of doing this for years but finally I signed up to do it for Macmillan cancer shave or style event.
Come end of August I’ll have my head shaved .
I’m so nervous but it’s in memory of my cousin who died from cancer in April so it’s inspired me to raise money.
That’s the link so please donate and share. 5 months ago

EliezerNot Exactly, But...

...I got a haircut like the one in the left. But, Daddy Yankee style (right) was my preferred haircut while I was in college hehehehe. Despite that… I like this kind of cut the first week only. Then I start wishing my hair grows again real fast. ...To get another haircut. Lol. 8 months ago

This was so awesome! I shaved my head this year for the World’s Greatest Shave on 17/03/13. I have wanted to do this goal for over 6 years but didn’t because of my ex boyfriend. Broke free from him and couldn’t be happier with my new style! Felt great to raise money for charity and donate my hair to a wig maker for cancer patients. My hair was down to my bellybutton when I went for the shave :) I went into the place alone, knowing nobody and raised over $200 in less than 5 minutes all from the generosity of strangers united together for a great cause! 17 months ago
