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

piercingmetal logo

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+.

Today is the day that my PiercingMetal.com website was official launched.

Click the photo below for some musings on the process and the changes from over the years. The image will bring you to that post for you to peruse. If you are a Chronicles Of Piercing Ken reader who is also enjoying the site that started it all for me, I say “Thank You So Much”. Click on…..

Celebrating 9 Years Of PiercingMetal.com :)

logo_piercingmetal

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.

My Business Card Evolution :)

Back in September of 2013, I mentioned in a blog posting how I had hit a bit of a personal milestone and was now officially a ten year deep music journalist and photographer whose been pursuing this creative passion on a semi-professional basis. I reflected upon that day HERE for those that might need to catch up with the rest of us on the events and now that its past I am aiming the sights higher on both this and my PiercingMetal.com website and will keep these kinds of stories happening whenever possible. On that note it was just this past December that I realized I was super low on my business cards and that it was high time to get to ordering some new ones because they would be needed for the tasks to come in the new year. This is especially the case for conventions like February’s Toy Fair, the NY Comic Con in addition to all of the shows that I attend. As I scoured my creative command center for any additional cards that I had lying around to get me past the limited number I had left, I discovered some cards from long ago that I felt would be fun to share in a blog posting/reflection. Let’s begin with this visual of a full box of brand new cards from Vistaprint who I have been using for my cards for the past ten or so years.
