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.

have more children
Would love to have more children

My husband and I are officially infertile. We went through one round of IVF and are blessed with one beautiful son. My pregnancy was so incredibly difficult I just don’t know if I can go through it again no matter how deep my desire to have more children. I was pregnant with triplets and lost one in utero at 22 weeks into the pregnancy after his amniotic sac ruptured. I was able to continue my pregnancy until 32 weeks, 3 days when I delivered my 2 living babies. That day, we learned my daughter had severe congenital heart defects and she passed away after 2 weeks. My husband and I agreed we would not try to get pregnant after age 40….so that gives me one year to give it another shot. Please pray for us!


My prayers are with you! What a difficult thing to go through, I am glad you have one beautiful son to share the world with, and I wish you well with your endeavors for another child.
