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.

I’m feeling transformative this year. 11 months ago

Right now, I’m working a temp job. I don’t want to say I have a careless attitude, but I feel like I don’t need to go out of my way to make a good impression here. When the assignment is over, I’m gone for good. As long as I do my work, I’m fine.

Normally at my more professional jobs, I dye my hair back to a natural color and take out the blue, hide my gauges, and wear professional clothes.

This time, to hell with it. I’ve kept my hair black and blue, worn my see through earrings, and only wore dress pants or button up shirts when I felt like it.

I still work hard, but I’d rather not worry about how I’m dressed here.

Not only has no one said anything to me about the way I look, but my bosses love me. They’re so wonderful to me, they appreciate how hard I work and let me know it, and have moved me to one of the highest positions a temp can have.

It’s nice knowing that I’m being judged for my work, which I always work hard on, rather than my appearance which doesn’t matter. For someone who often feels judged for her appearance, it means a lot to me. 19 months ago
