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.

This day has come

Well. Finally this has happened and I now have a lovely, healthy beautiful daughter called Olivia. Born the 2nd December at 14.41 & weighing in at 7lbs 7ozs. Wasn’t the best of deliveries, but well worth every ounze of pain & energy.

One on the way

I was delighted to find out that in March my husband to be and I are expecting our first child in December.
I feel very womanly with my ever expanding belly!
I am to date 19+5 wks pregnant. I feel the ikkle bambino kicking and somersualting around in my belly. last night s/he gave me a good couple of kicks. It was amazing!!!
Can’t wait till Roy (husband to be) can feel tha baby kicking inside too

Is the time now??

_I am looking forward to me and my longterm partner having children sometime soon. I am more keen then he is at present, as he wishes us to be really settled in good jobs so that we can provide well for our children( nothing wrong with that I know)
As soon as I hit the ripe age of 30 years old I literally felt my biological clock counting down.
I don’t know why my body was screaming at me to get a move on. But it has excactly on my 30 birthday. I wasn’t bothered and said that I would like children by the time I was 33. I have excactly 2 years and 9 months left!._
