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.

whitesapphireStill no baby...

...and that’s quite alright. I realize there are many other goals on this list that I need to accomplish before juniors come along. We did decide on a girls name if we have one. So that’s a fun step in the dreaming and planning stages. Tesla Emerson, although Emerson is still up for debate. And after all, we still have at least nine months before we have to nail it down. :) 5 months ago

hebawomMonth 3

This month we’ve decided once we hit the fertile window, we are going to have sex every day for 7 days to give the best chance. I know it sounds like hard work, but I’m really looking forward to it! 6 months ago

hebawom2nd month

Well, we did a pregnancy test yesterday and unfortunately still no joy. For me, I know it takes time, but my wife was a bit down about it yesterday. 6 months ago

hebawom2nd Month

We decided we’d start trying at beginning of May, but didn’t know what we were doing really. This month we’ve downloaded an app that helps you choose the most effective days to have sex on, so hopefully if we are both medically sound, this should happen soon! 6 months ago

Rachel StapletonA Life Changer

I always wanted children and this past January, my sweet and sour Luke came into this world on the fast track. I say sweet and sour for a reason. Any parent would be a liar if they said that screeching cry an infant can sometimes make doesn’t make them wish they had ear plugs. You know the cry. The one where their face turns deep red and it lasts so long, you wonder if they’re going to start breathing soon.

The sweetness overrides the sour by a long shot. He may only be two months old today, but his first smile threw me for a loop. His first true giggle was one of the most amazing sounds I’ve ever heard and I was lucky enough to have it caught on camera, not just for my enjoyment, but also for his deployed father to see and hear.

He drives me crazy at times and when I’m at my most exhausted, he smiles right at me as if he knows that’s exactly what I needed. He’s my little love and I can’t wait for our adventures ahead. 9 months ago

maribear2nd Trimester!

We got to make the big announcement today! Everyone was really excited and supportive. I’ve been lucky that everything has gone so well so far. It still feels sort of unreal right now. We have another doctor’s appt next week. Hopefully everything continues to go smoothly – we’re excited to be first-time parents! 10 months ago

CassieI did it!

On December 9th, 2013 my sweet Hazel Amber was born. It only took me 27 years, 60 hours of both back labor and prodromal labor, and three pregnancies to get her but she was well worth the wait. I would post her picture but I have my reasons for not wanting my daughter’s picture posted on the internet. Just know that I am one proud mommy and would love to do this again! 11 months ago

nloudonPregnancy & bronchitis

So Christmas went well, did not let the news out of the bag yet, hoping to wait for second trimester, however at the family Christmas Eve get together, my husband’s Uncle showed up sick as a dog with Bronchitis, proceeded to golf in the freezing temps in the snow. And (Uncle’s) son was also just getting over bronchitis. I am so miserably sick as no one said anything until the uncle started coughing horribly. I thought he simply had a hangover (not the first). Then they took him to the emergency room. Now I’m sick, my insurance just switched and my previous doctor is no longer covered and we have a 5,000$ deductible. This month has been a nightmare outside of finding out we’re pregnant. I worked today but came home with a wracking cough and green/yellow/brown phlegm. Drinking tea, had soups, and am now waiting on my awesome husband to bring home a humidifier so I’m not so miserable. I would smile but it’ll just look like a cringe from all the pain. Hope someone somewhere is having a perfect pregnancy to compensate for my bronchitis ridden one. 12 months ago

RachaelDue date is the 5th of January

Although I’m looking more towards the 20th, as things will definitely be more likely to be happening/have happened by then :) Exciting and also rather scary! 12 months ago
