Ken Pierce Media Posts 200th Clip on TikTok

For the last few months I’ve been doing a post for every 50th clip that gets placed on the Official Ken Pierce Media TikTok. As you might expect I did one for the very first clip and then one for the 25th clip for good measure and from then on it would be at every 50th addition to this feed. Back when I began using this social network I wasn’t sure how I’d like to approach it but after the 50th came the 100th and then 150th which brings us to this latest achievement. Yes my friends, I have posted my 200th TikTok clip and this one actually happened to come along a little faster than the previous one did and that was because I was not only doing posts from concerts and conventions but I also was hitting a few website and social media milestones. The 200th clip is actually about one of those milestones and lauds the fact that the Official PiercingMetal YouTube is now fifteen years old. I don’t know about you but I think that this news calls for some kind of Internet celebration.

Content Creator Ken Pierce Celebrates 17th Year On YouTube

Hey there my friends, I’m so happy that you’re joining me because today I’d like to pause the creativity for a moment and share a little bit of the personal side of the fence with you all. Today, March 25th 2023 is actually the 17th year of my using the YouTube network. Now for those keeping score that means I’ve had my own personal YouTube account for almost as long as I’ve had the PiercingMetal website which was launched back in April 2005. That anniversary post is coming soon enough so please be patient as I reflect on my first, original YouTube profile/channel etc. Since it is a personal account, its simply called @kenpierce

So you might be saying “Wow Ken, with a YouTube Channel that old you must be one of the original legends in content creation” and well, my answer would have to be nope because while I created the original account in 2006, I wouldn’t even get around to posting anything on it until 2011. Hindsight being 20/20, way back then no one knew what was going to happen with these networks and how people became not so overnight sensations from them. I was using YouTube a lot to watch videos and concert posts and be able to like and comment on them while in the background I kept saying to myself, “one of these days”. Truth be told, “one of these days” ended up happening in 2008 when I decided to launch a Channel for the PiercingMetal site but I am not here to talk about that channel just yet. I’ll do that in April because that Channels own 15th Anniversary is not long after the websites own 18th birthday ;p

Ken Pierce Media Posts 150th Clip on TikTok

I’m a little behind schedule on this one as it’s been a bit of a whirlwind of busy here at the Creative Command HQ. Now you might recall that I ended up joining the ranks of TikTok using the Ken Pierce Media branding and since our very first video (which I will share once more down at the close for posterity), I’ve been trying to do a little spotlight post with each increment of “50” posts on this network. I dug back in time to when I had created the actual profile, which seems to have been some time in early 2021 but I didn’t use it until the tail end of 2022 with that badge reveal for the New York Comic Con. Today I am here to share that the profile has just recently published it’s 150th post and much like my longtime love of the comic book scene, this post reflects quite possibly my favorite thing ever – The Hottest Band In The World KISS!!! The background on this one is that KISS had just recently announced their Final 50 Concert dates ever and as expected I wrote a quick website post about it. Since this is highly important news for our audience I made a TikTok to share as well in the hope that I will secure some additional website traction from it.


The Hard Rock legends #kiss have announced their Final 50 Performances of their career and ending the #endoftheroad #worldtour #genesimmons #paulstanley #tommythayer and #ericsinger are the #hottestbandintheworld and we are both excited and sad about the news.

Ken Pierce Media Is Now On Mastodon Social

The Ken Pierce Media outlet has been steadily growing for almost three years now and a part of that brand growth is making sure that there is a continual presence on whatever popular social media page that appears along the way. For the last few months, the Twitterverse seems to have been torn asunder based on their being purchased by billionaire inventor Elon Musk and resultant of that purchase and numerous changes, many users exited the platform and went over to something called Mastodon Social. So what is that exactly? Let’s take a look…

What Is Mastodon: Mastodon is free and open-source software for running self-hosted social networking services. It has microblogging features similar to Twitter, which are offered by a large number of independently run nodes, known as instances, each with its own code of conduct, terms of service, privacy policy, privacy options, and content moderation policies. Mastodon was created by Eugen Rochko (c/o Wiki)
