The Art of Teenage Pokemon: Season 1

Making Teenage Pokemon Season 1 took many hours of work. For me, those hours were mostly spent on putting together the story, the voices (except for cameo characters like Misty and Ditto), digging up music, trying to get the ...

How to get your blog on Destructoid's front page photo
How to get your blog on Destructoid's front page
by Mr Andy Dixon

Believe it or not, many of the wonderful writers you see every day on the Destructoid front page got their start in our very own Community Blogs. Chris Carter, Kyle MacGregor, Tony Ponce, and many other Dtoid staffers (including yours truly!) can trace our humble beginnings to writing Cblogs for nothing more than our own pleasure and the simple joy provided by the occasional "fap". (Dtoid's version of upvoting.)

You see, unlike a lot of other sites, Destructoid prides itself on our record of promoting writers from within, which is why we strive to give our top Cbloggers all the attention we can. Every month we promote well-written user blogs to the front page, and when it comes time to bring on more staff, those are often the people we hit up first.

So how does it all work? What can you do to start seeing your work rewarded with "the front page treatment"? Here's Mario with some tips for getting started!
