Hitting A Decade Of Using WordPress (2007-2017)

So I am a few days late with this news but its been a little busy over here at the Creative Command HQ; The other day I received a notification on the WordPress Admin Dashboard which said that a super cool milestone had been reached and this anniversary is that I had signed up for WordPress.com some ten years ago.  Longer tenured readers know that I am using this blogging software on both of my websites at this time.   Check out the “Anniversary Graphic” and then we shall continue along.

As I’ve noted in past posts of this kind, I love sharing what amounts to a website anniversary or maybe with this its more of a blogiversary since its for the blogging software I’m celebrating here.  Ten years is a long time to be doing anything nowadays and while I’ve been using the WordPress software for that long, the main PiercingMetal website hit its 12th Anniversary back in April while “The Chronicles” is now just passed its 7th.  I should have gone to WordPress a little earlier with PM.com but was afraid to make the jump when this was something “brand new”.  Now, with both outlets fully using WordPress the creativity flows a whole lot easier than ever before.  Let’s take a look at where these two websites stand collectively.

The Chronicles Of PiercingKen Hits 7th Anniversary

Good afternoon readers, I just wanted to take a moment out of this rainy Monday to share the news about today being the seventh anniversary of my Lifestyle Blog “The Chronicles Of PiercingKen”. As longer tenured visitors already know, this website was launched as a space for me to share all the different stuff that didn’t fall in lines with my Music and Pop Culture themed PIERCINGMETAL.com website. During the course of the last year, I’ve made sure to keep the content flowing and while its not as often as it might be with PM.com, there are a considerable amount of narratives becoming a part of this presentation based on conventions and other events that fit best right here. Now its time to talk about the stuff that’s been changed a little bit and to showcase some fun photos that helped me celebrate The Chronicles “Lucky 7th” Anniversary and since we are discussing “luck” what is better than this visual of a slot machine from Atlantic City.

The PiercingKen Blog Is Officially Six Years Old!

Hello there my readers, I just wanted to take a moment out of your day to let you know that today is the sixth anniversary of this PiercingKen.com Blog and what a fun six years it’s been so far. Those folks who’ve been with me since the beginning know that it was launched as a space where all of the other photography, musical forays and city observations could be presented and serve as a home away from my Metal home over at PiercingMetal.com – Now you newbies to the domain know as well. Thank you for taking the time to visit us from time to time when there is something that I would like to say.


The past year of creative offerings have spanned my museum and convention visits and some tourism from both NYC and from Down South where I visit family. I hope to do more of that stuff as I begin the path to the seventh year. I didn’t get as much music discussed on the site as I would have liked but some of the items on the agenda were held back by the increased productivity of the PiercingMetal.com site. With that site completely in WordPress at this point, the to do list gets bigger and bigger but that is fine by me. I’ve remained very active on this sites social networks so I hope you are following the Official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram because when I am out in our great metropolis I’m sending information to all of them. My plans for the new creative year are more music, more museum stuff and perhaps even other conventions that some might find interesting – oh yeah and more food stuff since I have connected this site its socials to both my Foodspotting and Yelp accounts . I’m also planning a lot more silly stuff from the personal archives that I hope will amuse you and get you thinking a little bit also if you should have similar things.

Thanks for the time you choose to spend here. I can say that traffic continues to climb as more and more posts get placed in this Lifestyle Archive and that’s a very good thing. There are about 375 posts to this site as I write this. Your interest in these musings about life humbles me.

Celebrating 11 Years Of PiercingMetal.com :)

Whether you calculate it as 132 months, 572 weeks, 4,015 days or 96,360 hours – it all ends up amounting to the same result of eleven years which is exactly how long my PiercingMetal.com website has been online. I’m rather proud of my Metal Media home on the web and wanted to be sure that all the readers of the Piercing Ken Blog were aware of this personal milestone. Click the image below to be taken to my posting about it on that site. I snapped this one with my phone so I could share the news best in our Instagram.


I’ve disabled the means to comment on this post since it relates to the other website and any notes from readers are better left on that posting on PiercingMetal.com – Either way, thank you all ever so much for keeping up with our adventures. You all rock.

The PiercingKen Blog Is Officially Five Years Old!

It was five years ago today that I decided to temporarily take off the leather gloves and Heavy Metal bling to put together some posts that would showcase another side of my photographic and journalistic adventures. Yes my friends, today is the fifth anniversary of the PiercingKen.com blog and I can hardly believe it.


It’s sure been a blast for me to have this extension for the creative energies and to bring them to your computer screens and mobile devices for this long a time. Statistically speaking its doing pretty good as a site of this kind and has had a few hundred thousand visitors and served up about a million page views to date. Okay, so it does have some serious catching up to do against my PiercingMetal.com site but that’s alright. With the number of websites currently online at this point in history I am grateful for any time that you spend here.

I should stress that I’ve been using the official social networks for the site quite a bit so please come check us out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram because each of them expands upon the stuff you are seeing here on the site. I’ll close out now with a word of “Thanks” and “Stay Tuned” for the next stuff.
