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.

Have a baby (read all 33 entries…)
So here he is.

Please don’t be disappointed that I will not post 1.000 pics on public sites as 43T, as my son also has a right to his privacy. We are happy that Torin is doing well. He was born 4 weeks premature and is currently still in the neonatology ward at the hospital, but no longer in an incubator. He is still a bit weak and drowsy, he’s got jaundice and does not breastfeed yet (hence the tube through which he is fed if he can’t finish his bottle), but with a little patience we will also achieve this and hope to bring him home, soon!

wow!

he doesn’t look like an alien, lol! especially premie babies, they come out looking a bit… extraterrestrial. hahaha, Torin is BEAUTIFUL. not many people get a beautiful baby off the bat! my cousin just gave birth in january and she gave birth to a furry eddy munster, hahaha!
he’s absolutely stunning! can’t wait till you can take him home. if you plan on breastfeeding, make sure you keep on pumping and store extras in the freezer. its nice having a bottle handy in case you need some self-time. you can hand the baby off to daddy with a bottle and go get a massage or something :D
congratulations, again!!!!!

precious

hope you get to take him home soon.

Congratulations!!
