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!

Destructoid's community blog highlights of 2012
by CblogRecaps

[The hard-working gents on your Cblog Recaps team put together this fantastic list of their personal favorite blogs of the year. Special thanks to ChillyBilly for the header! Want to see YOUR blog get mentioned on the front page in 2013? Go write something! --Mr Andy Dixon]

There are plenty of videogame blogs here in the blogocube. Part of what makes Destructoid a unique slice of Internet pie is its wonderful community. The community seems to attract a wide range of interesting and talented people. The community blogs (or Cblogs) are a place where this is demonstrated on a daily basis. There are amazing writers, artists, musicians, you name it, that write blogs there. Some of the better ones even end up on the front page! 

Continuing our long-standing tradition, we at the Recaps team have decided to highlight our favorite blogs, bloggers, and moments of the year. 

So, please join us in our pretentious choosing of the best of the community blogs in 2012!
