Hello once again my friends and welcome to another announcement about what is going on in the creative command center as I continue to use this platform to share some of the latest news about what the Ken Pierce Media family of brands is getting involved in. Yesterday I attended the Toy Insider’s awesome “Holiday Of Play” event over at Current at Chelsea Piers and today we would be shining some media light on the TTPM Holiday Showcase. For those who aren’t up to speed, “TTPM” stands for “Toys, Tots, Pets and More” and much like the Toy Insider events, a number of major and up and coming toy companies present their wares to select media and those who might be considered influencers. This year the event will be happening over at the Metropolitan Pavilion which is a welcome space for me. Last time around the Affordable Art Fair was being hosted there but this year that event will begin next week so it was open. I like this space and come to a number of different events here across the year. At the time of this writing, I only know about a small handful of exhibitors who mentioned they would be there after talking to them yesterday.

Greetings my Friends and welcome back to another announcement about our most current adventuring. So I guess I’ve been using the Ken Pierce Media site as a bit of a launch point about what the pair of creative sites are getting up to and I have to say that this has been working out fine for me on each and every occasion. Historically speaking, when PiercingMetal would be heading to New York Comic Con I would share the news there and maybe over on “The Chronicles” if I remembered but now with this as our editorial “Executive Branch” I’m trying to do them here from the onset. With that said its time to share the news that I am returning to the Chelsea Piers event space known as “Current” to participate in the annual Toy Insider “Holiday Of Play” event. I’ve been attending the special events held by this team of experts for years and with each go round it just gets better and better. I’ve pointed out that this one is even more exclusive than their “Sweet Suite” which happens in the summertime and while it isn’t exactly Fall just yet, the time to decide on ones holiday purchases is now and this is the place to learn about all that is awesome from the folks who know about play. Their hashtag is #weknowplay after all.
According to my posting history, I announced that Ken Pierce Media had a profile on the TikTok network in April of 2022 but it would be about five months later before I actually used it for anything related to brand. I am fairly certain that I had it a bit longer but with my first posting being in September 2022, that is the date that I consider to be the official anniversary of Ken Pierce Media on TikTok. Since that time I’ve used the network considerably and with each increment of “50” I pause to celebrate its continued use as we aim to raise awareness of the adventures of PiercingMetal, The Chronicles of Piercing Ken and of course Ken Pierce Media. Though I hesitated about ever being caught up in such a network I am here once more to celebrate its use and announce that I have reached clip “300”. This clip is very close to our first-ever clip as it celebrates the arrival of the much-desired New York Comic Con press badge.
It’s without question that I was very happy to be showcasing the arrival of the NYCC badge because its an event that I enjoy attending and get a lot of media work done at. Last year I think I posted “45” posts, recorded about “20” video interviews and shared just shy of “1000” photos on assorted social media platforms. Having clip number 300 be related to the convention was also amusing because I’ve gotten a little better at this platform since the first clip which was also NYCC in theme. I still don’t know how to do all the crazy bells and whistles stuff but right now that is fine for me. Now before wrapping this announcement up I was to change the dynamic of how I’ve been closing this kind of post. For the past batch of incremental announcements I was showcasing our very first video but now that this one has come full cirlce I’ve decided to share a favorite clip or one that has been doing super well on TikTok in terms of views. The favorite clip for this post comes from the Metallica Pop-Up Store in Brooklyn from about a month ago when the legendary band was visiting our region.
For those in the unaware, the last few times that Metallica has hit the masses with their tour they launch a special “Pop-Up Store” that has a whole lot of awesome band related merchandise and a lot of it is only available at these shops. When they performed at the MetLife Stadium, a store was set up at the nearby mall and one in Downtown Brooklyn. I visited the Brooklyn space and did a one minute exploration for the purposes of short form video. Bear in mind that said Pop-Up is only open for the days that the band would be in town so this one would open on Friday and close on Sunday when the second night of their appearances took place. This clip did gangbusters for the profile and at the time of this announcement has achieved more than 6.5K views. The only downside is that the likes of this clip don’t equal that as well but such is the life in the world of TikTok posts. Poeple scroll through feeds somewhat endlessly and so few take the extra second to like the clips. I do that for all of the videos I watch because I know that it helps the engagement and yet with that being said 6.5K views is nothing to sneeze at for me. The profile still needs to reach “200” Followers but I am in no rush on that since we’ve no stake in the TT game like some others we know. The likes continue to climb but please know that if you do watch our content that you are being super helpful and dedicated by liking them as well since that generates a little more visibility. We also love comments and I answer all the legitimate ones when I see them. I’ll close with the now standard viewpoint that I very much appreciate the time you spend scrolling through our feed and look forward to making more and more videos and perhaps even getting more creative with them. See you next time.
