Hello my friends, I’m here to share a little bit of the coolness that’s been brewing in the Media Command HQ insofar as it applies to the Official YouTube Channel for the Piercing Ken website. It was only a short time ago that I was alerted about the Channel having surpassed 100K Views since its debut in September 2020. The launch of this Channel was very overdue as the Piercing Ken website has been online since 2010 and became a professional voice in 2016. It wasn’t until the scourge of the pandemic found so many of us stuck at home and thinking outside the box and boom here we went. Since its debut I’ve been steadily loading up content and according to the administration panel, there has been a brand-new video every other day since February of 2023. The clip that moved the counter past the 100K marck was actually a Short that I recorded only days ago at the NY NOW Trade Show. It’s embedded right below for your consumption.
So I’ve actually just talked about this over on the PiercingMetal website (seen HERE) and since “The Chronicles” also has a very busy existence in the social media space I figured a post over on this side of the creative fence was in order. Now in case you haven’t heard this news yet, it seems that the folks at Meta, which is the parent company of Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram have determined that we need yet another social media application to use and have announced the launch of “Threads from Instagram”. This seems to be the Meta response to Twitter and I imagine can be used in the same fashion. The account for “The Chronicles” got created right from my current Instagram profile and uses the same exact handle. The only downside for me is that I wasn’t able to do this as Ken Pierce Media because lately I am making any new networks to be the editorial overseer presence as opposed to either side of the coin. It’s worked for things like TikTok very well so why not continue the trend. My first post to Threads is below and as I mentioned on the other post, one cannot embed these items.
Greetings my readers of “The Chronicles”, I wanted to take a moment out of the busy day to let you know that this Piercing Ken website has been using the Instagram photo-sharing network for ten full years now. Now it would normally be down below where I shared the photo from the anniversary date but truth be told I have been so busy with work and trying to squeeze in adventures when its possible to do so that I had to reflect back a month ago where you see me all official as the COVID Safety Manager for the “Tina – The Tina Turner Musical” on Broadway. It’s interesting and challenging work for sure and I hope you like seeing me all official-like.
Hey there readers of “The Chronicles”, I’m pausing the regularly scheduled postings to once again laud an accomplishment that was achieved by one of our most used social networks. I’m talking about none other than the Official Tumblr of PiercingMetal.com which has achieved some 4,000 posts as of yesterday. Pretty cool right? I think so. More about this after the graphic.
Piercing Ken Thoughts: Whew! So many posts right? I’d like to think so as I am a bit of a numbers guy and while the use of Tumblr is mostly as a feed to the content over on PIercingMetal.com and sometimes to the stuff that I am posting here on “The Chronicles”; the achievement of 4K posts show we have never given up on using it. Last summer I had pointed out that Tumblr was purchased by the folks over at Automattic and they also own WordPress so they might end up doing something bigger with it. You can learn more about that happening by clicking HERE. The bottom line is that I will continue to keep on sharing my posts over on Tumblr and our 11th year of usage is around the corner at this point. Despite the pandemic, I’ve tried to keep myself posting busy and while some of my fellow website scribes are sitting around idle, I am closing in on having made something like “500” posts between the two websites at the time that you are reading this update. I even recently launched a Blogspot to help me learn more of their backend workings for future technical assistance use. That Blogger account is also a “feed” of sorts between both of my websites but it doesn’t look at nice as Tumblr does. Check that our by clicking HERE and maybe even follow if you have a Google account. Maybe I will change this around too but right now I’ve other things to focus on. That’s all I have for this announcement or update or whatever. I hope this finds you all staying safe and following your local regions guidelines to be safe during this viral pandemic. See you again soon.
Update 10/1/2020: Since the time of this announcement, the PiercingMetal Tumblr has been rebranded as the Ken Pierce Media Tumblr and all links now reflect this change. This rebranding makes it all the more comprehensive and entertaining going forward.
Hey there my friends, so I am just taking a quick moment out of your day to let you know that “The Chronicles of Piercing Ken” website has been using the Instagram photo-sharing social media platform for five years. Five years!!!! I’m rather shocked about it since I don’t always take to some of these networks since they aren’t always helpful to the brand. However, since “The Chronicles” became more of a professional voice back in 2016, I have to say that this has been helping. The Piercing Ken profile has done some awareness to the site stuff based on what I’ve been posting and I am okay with that. Now since I didn’t have a photo from the actual anniversary day posted I went back a few days and share this absolutely vintage photograph of me. I think I am about 1.5 years old here so let me have it.
