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.
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.
Hey there. I just wanted to take a quick commercial break from the regularly scheduled blogging to let you all know that the PiercingKen Blog has successfully hit the beginning of our second year. It’s exciting for me to say the least because I was still enjoying the feeling of accomplishment after recently celebrating seven years of PiercingMetal.com as a website and having its own blog hit five years shortly after that. When one considers how rapidly blogs and websites come and go nowadays thanks to things like Facebook Pages it’s always nice to have clocked in with another year of creative output.
I’ll admit to the readers that I really love having the PiercingKen Blog because it lets me do absolutely anything that I feel like tossing into the mix. Sometimes I will talk about music or past experiences in the field and sometimes I will do something with a more culinary flair and show you how to properly assemble a Vietnamese chicken noodle soup. PiercingKen is my catch all, but at the same time is a real day to day life observance through my eyes and will bring to your attention anything that I see that I feel like writing about or sharing with you. Some readers love it and there are others who, well, I really don’t care if they like it or not. Those folks can spend their time surfing around for other stuff that suits their fancy.
I’ve been going through so many photo folders to see what we have for upcoming posts and believe me there is a healthy amount of “travelog” kind of stuff to share with you along with whatever else happens to amuse me at the time. I might even scan some older photographs of places that I shot years ago and would like to explore as a creative today. Who knows. Just stay tuned by subscribing to our RSS Feed or adding our Official Facebook Page or Twitter. Thanks for making the past two years a lot of fun, I love keeping you entertained.
Can you believe it? I know that I can’t because I didn’t expect to use this blog site as much as I ended up doing but that is okay because I love the freedom that it offers me as a provider of written and visual entertainment. When I launched PiercingKen.com, you might remember that it originally had a Blogger account for a few posts. If you don’t recall this, that is okay because every post was imported into the new WordPress medium we moved to only a few months after launching. Looking back on the creative year that it’s been I found a little surprise that I didn’t manage to start off the blog with an introductory post about its premise, but I guess I was just too eager to start delivering different content to a different audience from my PiercingMetal.com readership.
Since launching the site, its been fortunate enough to develop its own fan base and readership and I was happy to find this being the case. I’ve really strove to do a lot of postings that reflect my interests and passions and to do so in a manner that brings you readers into the mix and leaves you hopefully wanting more. I have no master plans for the second years posts but I can say expect a little bit of the same, a little silliness and perhaps even something to inspire. I don’t think too deeply on this and I suggest that you just sit back and enjoy the offerings. I’ve gotten our Facebook page up and running so please be sure to “Like” us over there or even Following us on Twitter. The links for these are below.
Closing up, thank you so very much for the time that you spend on this site. I truly appreciate it.
