Today I say goodbye to “PiercingMetal Musings” which has served our readers well as The Official Blog for PiercingMetal.com for just over seven years at the time of this writing. You look a little sad at that announcement but let me tell you why you should only be smiling at that little bit of news.
I’m about a month into the redevelopment of my PiercingMetal.com site and since I am now using WordPress to deliver all of the content that you have come to this dotcom to enjoy, there was no longer a need for a side presence to the brand name that used this same software. When I first installed WordPress and created “PiercingMetal Musings” it was to expand my creative voice outside of the context of objective review. It worked very well but as we steadily approach the websites tenth year online it was time to make a change. Over the last few weeks I have been importing all of the posts that you’ve enjoyed for the past seven years and have appended their categories to fit nicely into the new framework. Some of the changes come via my “When The Music Died” and “Movie and TV Mania” topics which have been renamed to “In Memoriam” and “On Screen” respectively. I dropped my “Heavy Metal Holy S**t” and “Around The Metal Republic” topics and put all those stories into my “Heavy Metal Happenings” for the time being but even that needs a dig through to see what category might work better for certain stories that were written.
I think that it’s great to have it all in one place now and find it a little easier to direct you to the Contests or the Reviews or any of our number of Special Feature focuses. As I’ve already mentioned, all of the legacy site content can be read via its menu option and while this is a no frills means, this is only for the time being as those articles are imported piece by piece into the new format. Thanks for the patronage and visits here as always, I look forward to keeping you entertained. Onward and upward we climb.
