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.

Have this picture and thought it was cute.

Last night we finally managed to get a proper ponytail in her hair, whaooo.

She’s growing 2 fast. I wish she would slow down I’m enjoying this 2 much. I will have to convince my partner it’s time to have another soon :)

She has this great way of shouting “Daaaa Daaaaa” when I’m out off the room soo cute lol.

She also bounces on my head when I’m sleeping just because thats what tigger would do. 8 years ago


I suppose this is a item that never ends.

I really do think I’m a good Dad, my Daughter is called Megan and is 15 months Old.

Been a dad is the best thing ever.

It’s hard to put into words the feelings when she runs up and gives you a real cuddle, not the I’m just cuddling because I should ones, a real squeezing you hard cuddle. 8 years ago

nickyandjanellesdadThe Greatest Gift

There is nothing in the world that compares to the feeling of either of my children waking up and crawling into bed with me in the morning. I melt and forget about all that is expected of being a man and become human in that moment. I feel alive. And it helps me when I feel overwhelmed and want to strike out at them when my children don’t do what I want them to (which is almost always…) Being a single parent is tough but the rewards far outwiegh the tears… 8 years ago


what is it that makes a good Dad? Its all to easy to be critical of your own father – but 9 times out of 10 he was probably just doing the best he could. I think recognising this is the first step. I want to try and develop a list that guides me as a father. Better go and think some about my list and free up the phone! 8 years ago

Lantz MattinsonSo worth it

Ok the process is far from over but my kids just dig me so much I must be doing something right. When I get home from work they both rush out screeming DADS HOME! DADS HOME! band give me the biggest hug. My bad day at work flys out the window. Love is powerful! 8 years ago

I tried to call Matt yesterday but he went with his Grandfather out to eat while his mother was home. What la lsoer, oh well.
I tried. 8 years ago


I had a good weekend with Matt. Despite a couple of close calls, I didn’t lose my temper at all we had such a good time. We got hit with over 2 feet of snow on Saturday night. Matt and I got up at 7:00 am and went sledding. It was a real blast. 8 years ago
