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.

Benji in Tredegar is doing 13 things including…

Plan now to get in shape after the baby is born so it won't be quite as much of a shock...

3 cheers

As we still don't really know

what will happen regarding the birth (BTW I am currently at 39 and 1/2 weeks) as baba T is very fond of doing somersaults, we could be booked in for a c-section on monday, we may not…

So as it could be a situation where I may not be able to do very much for a while after the birth I started looking up how I could help things along, as when I had Sam that was a c-section and the recovery was awful and I didn’t want to find myself in thgat situation again…

Anyhow, I came across a review for a site called seraphina who make post-partum support “belts” I guess you could call them. They apparently help with the recovery of the seperated muscle of the abdomen, the only catch is you have to wear them 24/7! But it is a positive step towards regaining your pre-pregnancy shape.

So after reading a little more (apparently they swear by something similar in Italy) I asked my husband to order me a couple, so in the next few days I will take delivery of one nightime and one daytime post-partum support garment!

I will have to wear them for 10 weeks! But seriously anything that aids recovery and makes you feel a little more human after childbirth can’t hurt can it?

Benji has gotten 3 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
