I’ve had a lot of fun this past year sharing the happenings in this Lifestyle Blog and also on its own branded Instagram account. Now, as the year heads towards a close its time to share what the #2017BestNine were for this profile. I’ll be adding some information about the ones that made this years cut. It was quite an interesting grouping IMHO. Here we go.
About These Visuals: The top photo of them all is the Lego statue of Luke Skywalker from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” and I did snap that with my mobile at the recent Play Fair event over at the Javits Center. There are also two photos of myself and two beautiful burlesque queens. I met Raquel Reed and Lou Lou D’Vil at the Tattoo Expo that happened this summer and they were awesome to chat with. A quick snap outside of The Met was a surprise one to see but who doesn’t love the baby goat from Book Expo America and of course my beloved Black Cat Spooke. The inflatable turkey from Macy’s is also rather new as is my Lego branding for PiercingMetal which was also done at Play Fair. This account is not used as much as my PiercingMetal one of course but I am trying to do more of the arts and tourism stuff here since “The Chronicles” website has been doing its best at raising the creative bar over the last few years. My hope for 2018 is to bring a lot more about my adventures in the city to light in this profile. We have a lot of museums to explore and while I didn’t post too much in terms of food goes, I do take plenty of photos of that stuff for the blog so why not share them on our Instagram as well.
At this point in time the Piercing Ken Instagram is followed by a little over “600” accounts and our demographic is 45% Men and 55% Woman. Our biggest region is New York (no surprise there) and followed by Los Angeles. The top age range is 25-34.

Recently, I was reading one of the many other music blogs out there .and they were lining out what social networks they recommend be used by bands that are currently trying to raise awareness about their existence. Let’s face it, there are a ton of groups and this was a great idea to see being done. Truth be told, a website is like a band as well because one must employ the same tools in order to help raise the brand profile and keep up with the Jones’. With that in mind, I felt it was a good time to revisit the whole crop of items being used by “The Chronicles” with a quick summary about it. This is our current main page and its theme with the latest posting. Oh yeah and outside of this image, if you click any of the photos you will be brought to that network.
Since it’s now the BIGGEST of the Social Networks ever, I should start with the Official Facebook Page for “The Chronicles”. Facebook became the Big Kahuna for all things social a few years ago and as result its made NUMEROUS changes to the dynamic. We’ve had an official account for years and its those who “like” it help to keep it flourishing. It’s free to have but unless you pay for advertisements or to “increase reach” of the posts you might as well be invisible. These days those who legitimately support our activities here have reported they never see our posts and its probably based on the two-step methodology of being seen. Fans have to not only “like” said page but also select “see first” when they do so. Otherwise we fall far behind all of those friends who argue politics with everyone else on your feed. I used to let the posts go there automatically upon their go live moment, but have since adopted the method of embedding them one by one so the assorted pages that they might relate to get tagged as well. It’s more work sure but its proven effective. Be sure to check this one out for sure.
Hello my fellow photo hounds and those who just like looking at images around the web on the social networks. The other day I discovered what the “Best 9” photos were for the Instagram for my PiercingKen.com site and as some of our readers might already know, this profile has been in play for a few months longer than the “METAL” one but is more broad in its presentation. The overall tally of the Official PiercingKen Instagram at the time of my posting this narrative is that it has 966 photos uploaded and a profile that is followed by 501 users. According to the “Best 9” website this account has had 3,374 likes on 206 photos. I think that’s pretty cool and am glad that I make some people smile with the profile. I hope to use it a lot more in 2017 based on what I see around me. Now, thanks to the fun website link which you will find at the end of this narrative, I was able to learn what my “9” most popular posted images were in 2016 and I wanted to share that with you below. Here is the graphic of those nine images. Continue reading Presenting PiercingKen’s “Best 9” Instagram Photos For 2016→
I’d been using Instagram as a personal account for my PiercingKen.com site for a few months before I decided to have one for the Metal website and it’s really a lot of fun for me since its an immediate glimpse into what I am seeing at the very second for the most part. Now while there are less than the PM.com one, the full tally is about 761 photos. Thanks to the fun website link which you will find at the end of this narrative, I was able to learn what my “9” most popular posted images were in 2015 and I wanted to share that with you below. Here is the graphic of those nine images.
The selections made me smile as it featured my beloved felines along with my home stomping grounds of Brooklyn and a few food related things. All of them a part of my personal world much like this blog itself. As with my PiercingMetal Instagram account, all of the items you see here are 100% original content and I’d have it no other way. If you click this image above you will be brought to our official account and I hope you choose to give it a follow and start perusing the images that have come before. Your click will help decide the ones that win this sort of thing when we get to the end of this year in another 362 days. I hope you enjoy it and know that I always appreciate the support. I’m looking to making this a productive year on PiercingKen and all its socials. Let’s do this together.
If you have been paying attention to my PiercingMetal Musings Blog and its continuing run of narratives on the various Social Networking mediums, you probably thought that you clicked into one of them by mistake since I copied the title premise for use over here on the PiercingKen Blog. You’ll have to forgive me this little bit of Internet sleight of hand and know that I only did this to let you readers know that I am using the Photo Networking application called “Instagram”.
I’m kind of excited because this application while used by so many iPhone users around me, has only been available to the Droid smartphone users for about two weeks. I installed it on my Droid “Incredible” but really need to get used to it before my upgrade time comes. I will be getting a new phone in a little over a month since my plan allows me to do that every two years. I’m leaning on the Droid RAZR Maxx and am NOT switching to an iPhone like many suggest that I do. Sorry. With that being the case, my Instagram account is “PiercingKen” just like this here blog but I don’t yet see a way to paste a direct URL link to my account so that interested parties may come and follow me. Hopefully the name will suffice and those who wish to keep up in that realm will have a little initiative and search me. My plan is to use this to showcase an image or two that will eventually be used in blogs and that lets those readers see them first. How exciting is that? I know right, it’s really super exciting. Well. At least to me so I do hope you will come along especially if you like what we are doing here on the side blog. It’s goal is always to entertain.
If you should want to enjoy the whole gamut of those Social Networking overviews and how I apply their use as a music journalist in today’s ever changing realm, just click HERE to bring up the list over on the PiercingMetal Musings Blog. Topical comments are always welcome on stuff like that especially if you are doing some similar adventuring.
UPDATE 8/13/2012: I discovered a way to find my Instagram and if you have any interest in what I am doing with that little side of the Internet you can easily click Follow from there. It seemed to work for me when I selected my friends account so have at it. I will try to keep you entertained and visually interested.
