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.

after three months i finally managed to send each and everyone of my friends overseas a postcard wit my current address – i think…

moving house

i’m moving house once again and to let all my international friends know i’ve sent out a whole bunch of postcards yesterday and i’ll probably will have to write another army before the end of this week…

oh my god, oh my god...

i wrote a postcard just before.maybe i should write a few more…


i can’t even remember the last time i’ve written a postcard. it’s time to get into that thing once again. if i want to receive some postcards, i’ll definately have to write a few. besides our home phone line is broken since a few weeks and it makes things with my friends and family overseas rather difficut. postcards will be the go!!

thesis and things

if i wouldn’t have to practice my procrastinating skills and write a thesis then i would try and write at least some of my friends overseas a postcard.
okay, enough excuses – it’s time for some postcards!!


i’ve written half a million postcards over the past two weeks. i hope i made a few people smile when they discovered them in their mailboxes. maybe i will get some responses…
wait and see!


that’s the amount of postcards i wrote the other day. so almost all my friends who have a current address and live somewhere else than here in australia will receive a postcard in the next few days…

postcard writing day

looks like i will be writing a few postcards today.
i haven’t written a single postcard in months so i guess, it’s about time to get started once again.
maybe i even get some back…


should really get onto this one once again. it’s been a while since i’ve sent my last postcard to a friend…


sent a holiday postcard to my mum after we had a minor car accident. how funny is it to send a postcard to your mum who lives in germany when you live in australia and am on holidays in the state that is the furtherst away from germany…

bipet has gotten 85 cheers on this goal.


I want to:
