PiercingMetal Hits It’s 14th Anniversary (2005-2019)

Please allow me to take a sidebar to the regular programming but I wanted to let you know that today is the day that my PiercingMetal.com website was officially launched some fourteen years ago. Now I’ve been at this sort of creative enterprise for just over sixteen years in full, but the PiercingMetal outlets birthday is today when we went public with its existence. If you click the photo below you’ll be taken to some thoughts about the process and the anniversary along with some statistical ramblings. 2019 finds “The Chronicles” making some serious strides as well, and if I didn’t start PiercingMetal.com I would have never been compelled to start this one up. If you have enjoyed that site as well, please click through and of course “Thank You So Much”.

As usual with this sort of traffic redirection; the means to add a comment has been disabled on this post and instead I encourage that comments be left on the post on the other site if you are compelled to do so. I’ve also listed all of the PiercingMetal Social Networks for you to peruse if you’d like to see what we are doing with them. This past year we dumped the unused MySpace and the pretty barren Vero True Social and began using both Tumblr and LinkedIn more for content feeds. Google+ ended a few days ago so thank you for your service G+.

Readers of both this AND my PiercingMetal.com websites know that we just love hitting the New York Comic Con. I started attending back in 2010 and keep the posts to the PM side of the fence when it comes to posting our narratives and images for the general public. With “The Chronicles”, I’ve begun to add more of the announcements about the event to this side based on the overall busy that is our regular posting regimen over there. That said, we just received an announcement from their Event Director with some news about some changes that will be happening for this years convention. Take a look down below.

Creating a better NYCC and making it a special experience for you is always our goal.

We’re in the business of producing fun and helping you celebrate your fandom with a few thousand of your closest pals, and where we start is with your feedback on how we can improve and do better.
