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.

My Bedroom

Is almost done, it is awesome. When I finish in the next 2 weeks or so, I’ll post a picture. Basement and back yard on the radar.

Slowly but surely

My children’s rooms are almost done, my bedroom is next. Funny I spent all that time looking for a house to buy, then I move in and change stuff.


I was on FB tonight and one of my friends mentioned the house warming party I was going to have. I need to get my few projects done and have that party. Once I get friends streaming through here and create more happy memories it will feel like more like home.

I have to wonder though, should I have that party anyway? Before my projects are done.


I have this big arificial tree, I like it. I had it in front of a little window at one end of my couch. My mother and my ex-wife are over for my birthday telling me they don’t think it looks good. Going on about it, they hate each other and are bonding over this. (If I had a camera I’d post a picture, need to get a camera!) So I move it.

Next day, F-em. I move it back. MY HOME!!!!

Move is done!

Boxes are omnipresent (mostly stuffed in closets), rooms are in disarray. Stage one: A place for EVERYTHING, and everything in it’s place. Stage two: unleash the decorating machine that I am and decorate the place, as I see fit (and money permits). No Wife = No consulting, No compromising. Oh do I have visions bouncing around in my head. This is going to be fun. When I am done I will have a home.

It’s a race too, because I want a bigger happier family and that means a new women, with her ideas.
