Hello there my dear readers of “The Chronicles”. I’m here today to take a moment of your time and share the news that my Heavy Metal Reviews and Pop Culture website PIERCINGMETAL has achieved its twelfth year of online existence. I know, time flies and I can hardly believe it myself. Longer tenured readers know that we occasionally use this page to redirect you to the other website and since I’ve shared my thoughts on this latest birthday, I will be doing so once more. Just click on the photo to be brought to PiercingMetal for our yearly summary.

Today the notification hit my WordPress Admin Dashboard and reminded me that I had reached a new personal milestone as one of the users of this blogging software. According to the notification I have now been a registered user of WordPress for nine years and its been a great boon to my creative world for sure. Below is the updated graphic that I was presented with.
I love sharing the webcentric anniversaries here on the Chronicles and to reiterate what this one actually means, its not a creative scribe anniversary but instead means I have been using the WordPress software for nine years. Some might remember that I originally began my forays into blogging by using the Blogger tools but I preferred the way WordPress flowed for me and that it could be installed right under my dotcom names. PiercingMetal.com hit its 11th Anniversary this year and PiercingKen.com its 6th and I’ve been a full WordPress creative house since 2014 which permits a lot more fluidity in my creative edge. I no longer even miss the old static design in the slightest since by 2014 the smallest update required so much work. While there is still a substantial amount of “legacy” content to integrate into PiercingMetal.com, across the board collectively it looks like this: Continue reading Hitting My WordPress 9th Anniversary 🙂→
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 . 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.
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 other day I received a notification on my WordPress Admin Dashboard that informed me that I had reached an anniversary as one of their users of this software. Apparently it was eight years ago that I first registered for my account for this blogging tool and wow how my media world has transformed via its use. Check out the cool announcement that they send you in this screenshot that my mobile captured.
Now before anyone gets confused about this particular anniversary, it simply means that I have been using this WordPress software for my creative stuff for eight years now. I originally began my forays into blogging by using the Blogger tools but I preferred the way WordPress flowed for me and that it could be installed right under my dotcom names. Some might remember that my PiercingMetal website reached its own 10th anniversary in April and PiercingKen.com had its 5th anniversary back in May. Since I moved on from the old static website design in 2014, I’ve been presenting just about all of my PiercingMetal stuff for you in WordPress when it comes to the new things while at the same time continuing the massive overhaul of the legacy posts. Across the board collectively it looks like this: PiercingMetal posts 3,485, PiercingKen posts 370 and last but not least PiercingMetal’s Event Listings are at 218. That adds up to 4,073 total postings using WordPress and yes I realize that I had lined out that the main website featured over 5,500 pieces a couple of years ago. The difference here comes from my still doing some rebuilding of the old stuff into the new WordPress format. Anyway, I thought this was some fun stuff to share with you since I didn’t have anything pressing to get online. Suffice it to say I just love this medium as a means to entertain you on both of my websites. Its so much more powerful than just leaving stuff to Facebook in my humble opinion.
Thanks as always for your support and as King’s X sings, “If you like what you see, then go tell somebody” (of course they sang “hear” but you know what I mean). See you next time.
