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.

RedgateReaching my goal size soon!

I’m a 2g right now. I’ve been here for about 3 months. So today I’m going to start using the taping method to stretch up to my goal size, 0g. :) 2 years ago

Careful with this one.. I got down to my goal size, double zero. Once I had gotten there, I realized I wanted them bigger, I wanted more. So I went and bought the next size up.. it turns out the material of the little squishy tunnels I bought, I was allergic to. My ears had an awful allergic reaction (an infection with bleeding and pus) and I had to take them out. Within a week my holes had shrunk back down to their original size. I had already spent so much money and time on them that I decided to just leave them out, and I’ve really been enjoying wearing normal earrings :) It was disappointing to have eight months of hard work and patience ruined like that, but I think it was for the best. I’m happy to have my ear lobes back. 3 years ago

Elizabeth ReszkeStretched My Ears.

My goal was to get to a size 0 and I finally got to it. It takes time, and believe me, take your time. I still have them and everyone loves them! (Photo – naked ears) 3 years ago
