Hello my friends and a “Happy Saturday” to you all if you are reading this on the day of its being published. So far as I can tell, it’s going to be a warm day today but I am not here to discuss the weather and instead want to share with the readership what I feel is some very cool news. Today is the 11th Anniversary of “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” Lifestyle Blog. A lot of you know of it only as “Piercing Ken” since that is the title I grabbed on a number of the social networks and the domain but the full formal title is “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” and I will not lie when I say that it’s been an interesting few years since the launch of this particular blog. Let’s recap. Continue reading “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken” Celebrates 11th Anniversary (2010-2021)→
Hey there my friends and diehard readers of “The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken”. I’m here to divert your attention once again because despite the fact of being under self-quarantine, my Heavy Music and Pop Culture website PiercingMetal.com has achieved its 15th year online as of this very day. As usual, I’ve spoken about the milestone and pointed out some of the highlights about running this kind of thing for so many years and you are invited to check out that narrative by clicking HERE. Doing so will transport you over to that website where you can enjoy the update. This time around I didn’t do a special photo for “The Chronicles” to use for the anniversary as I liked the one I did for PM.com so darned much. I just copied my code from there to here. It’s topical for sure under these precarious times.
As you might already expect, the means to comment on this little signpost has been disabled as I’d prefer any topical notions be left over on PiercingMetal as far as the anniversary is concerned. All of that websites social networks are linked for you down below and I hope that you will consider giving them some attention. The more the merrier I always say and considering what is going on out there right now, I hope this update finds you and your loved ones safe and sound. We might still be in the early stages of this mess but I remain hopeful that we surpass it all sooner than later. See you next time and thanks for your support of both of my creative outlets.
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. I’ve been at this for a little over fifteen years in full, but the PiercingMetal outlets birthday is today when we went public with its existence. 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…..

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.
