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.

breastfeed my son for as long as he wants

I just passed the two year marks with my son. Currently pregnant and doing tandem nursing for my first son and the pregnancy. I wish that my son would self-wean soon, but still, he can breastfeed as long as he wants.

empower women to breastfeed

I just joined the committee of Breastfeeding Mothers Support Group Singapore as well as occasionally advising breastfeeding moms in Indonesia. I’m so happy, and hope to be able to make a difference

Travel on the Trans-Siberia railway (read all 2 entries…)
Update on planned route.

I might want to do the transib starting from Hanoi, since air tickets to hanoi is really cheap from Singapore. Then take Hanoi-Beijing Train.

I also want to take the Tibetan Train from beijing before or after doing transib.

Meanwhile, my transib route will be like this:
Beijing – Ulan Bator – Ulan Ude – Irkutsk – Vladivostok – Irkutsk – Harbin – Beijing. I’d rather have a loop than to continue to Moscow.

Then return to singapore by train to Hanoi and take Tiger Airways from Hanoi to Singapore.

Allocated time will be six to eight weeks to do Singapore – Hanoi – Beijing – Lhasa – Beijing – Transiberian – Beijing – Hanoi – Singapore. Target: Year 2009 or 2010 spring or summer.

Must travel in a group of four to save cost in getting soft sleepers cabins.
