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.

get an industrial piercing (read all 3 entries…)
3 Weeks in......

After three weeks this piercing is healing nicely, it’s nowhere near as tender or sore now even if i knock it (unless really hard).

It’s great. I still can’t wait for the six weeks to be u so I can put the single in, I have been tempted to be naughty and just put it in early but from all the research I have done; cartilage is not something to mess around with because it is easily aggravated and can be prone to infection so I am going to do it by the book.

As for as aftercare, I have now adopted the “Leave it the hell alone” approach, I did salt water soaks for the first week and half twice a day, but now it just gets washed in the shower, no antibacterial products (as these can hinder healing) and its going great.

I am marking this “Worth Doing” now. Such a great piercing, even with the two small bars it looks pretty cool.



I want to:
