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 (all items are linked down below for ease of your support). 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.

Marking A Decade Of PiercingMetal.com (2005-2015)


I just wanted to take a moment and let the readers of the PiercingKen.com site know that my music and pop culture website PiercingMetal.com is celebrating its 10th Anniversary today. To be quite honest I can hardly believe it because it really doesn’t feel like its been that long but indeed it has. I put up a quick narrative with some history and visuals on the website and you can check that out by clicking on the image below. If you’ve been supporting the site over the years I would love for you to comment in on the anniversary and ask that you do it on that post as opposed to here. The comments on this posting have been turned off so you cannot say it here anyway.

Thanks for all the support you’ve given to PiercingMetal and of course on this site as well; I will be back on this same channel with your regularly scheduled posting programs 🙂

Celebrating 9 Years Of PiercingMetal.com :)


Hey there my readers and those who just are chancing by and enjoying the offerings of this little website of mine. As you’ve seen me do in the past, every now and again I like to share what I am doing on the PiercingMetal website. Well it’s time for me to once again take a moment of your time to let you know that my music and photography site, PiercingMetal.com, has reached another birthday. Today is the ninth anniversary of that website and I am pretty amazed at how much its grown since I decided to launch it. For the newbie’s who don’t know much about it, I do reviews over there of Heavy Metal music, videos, concerts and books. There’s an occasional interview but not too many these days and I even have a side blog to it that I call “PiercingMetal Musings”. The blog is done in WordPress like “The Chronicles” but the main website is still being done in traditional HTML.


When this time of year rolls around, I like to toss some thoughts together about it all and the process involved. If any milestones were achieved across the year I like to talk about that as well. The interested reader can click HERE for that summary over on the PiercingMetal website. Also, I think this might be a good time to tell you that I have been testing a WordPress installation in a secure folder for the content of the main site. While I might be using that software for this site and the side blog for PM, the overall layout will need to be a little more focused and professional. So far so good but I am not yet ready to make that switch. I hope you come over to that website and click around for awhile because between the proper site and the side blog there is a little bit of everything for you to enjoy. Also, PiercingMetal utilizes all of the main Social Networks of the day so please give a “like” or “follow” to the official accounts that are linked below. If the adventures over there are of interest to you I’d sure love to have you engaging with me as I undertake more and more. I’ll see you soon back on this site with my next interesting adventure around the metropolis.
