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.

45. My daughter stroking my wrist when I feed her

45. My daughter stroking my wrist when I feed her. Her had in always warm when she tries to grab my wrist tattoos.

44. Dancing with my daughter and fiancé

44. It made me happy to dance with my daughter and fiancétonight. I was trying to get her to sleep with some Chris de burgh and ended up serenading them both!

43. My daughters laugh

43. The sound of my daughters laugh, and the fact l brought it on!

42 - my daughters hand when it pokes out the side of her crib at night

42 – it makes me happy to see my daughters little hand poke out the side of her crib at night when she sleeps. It means I can stroke it (which always wakes her up but I can’t help myself from doing) and it looks so tiny and perfect.

41 - the sound my daughter makes when sucking on her dummy

41 – It’s this cute clicking sound. Even more so when she is asleep doing it :)

35 - 40

35. Feeling my daughter for the first time once she’d been born.
36. Seeing my daughter’s wide eyes looking up at me
37. That my daughter seems to prefer mummy milk over formula, despite both coming from a bottle
38. The sight of my daughter in a fresh outfit for the day, or a fresh baby grow of a night
39. The feeling of my daughter being so content laying on my chest with her legs tucked up and arms tucked in.
40. Seeing my daughter’s smile (I’ve been told it’s just wind, but I don’t care, it’s a smile to my eyes!)

34. Feeling my daughter move

34. Feeling my daughter move in my belly is such an amazing feeling. I imagine her stretching out or wiggling in there and it makes me beam with happiness. Knowing she is safe and comfortable with me 24/7 is a good feeling. I love that her kicks are stronger now because that shows me she is growing big, strong and healthy :D

33. Seeing my baby move

33. Seeing my baby for the first time today was amazing. Baby jumped around a few times and had it’s hands up by it’s face.

This pregnancy and my baby finally seems real, and I am getting really excited even though I know I have a long way to go.

Despite baby-daddy not seeming to care, I will not be brought down. This is my baby and I will love it more than anyone else in the world ever could. We will fair splendid together, and I can’t wait!

32. Having my family support me

32. I told my family I was pregnant last night and instead of the negatively shocked reaction I was expecting, I got all round support and excitement. It made me so happy hearing everyone say they would support me, and getting excited for me :)

31. Laying in bed at night listening to the rain

31. laying in bed at night when its raining outside makes me feel peaceful and happy. Love it.
