About
I've been helping my journalist mother with her side job for nearly a decade now - Reviewing video games. Since we got our first video game system in '93- a 16 bit Sega Genesis so that she could play Pac-Man, she has fed my addiction for games without spending over 100 dollars in over 14 years. Our first purchase since Armored Core 2(our only video game purchase ever) was our X-box 360 in the summer of 06. In all the years between have been the endless fighting between my brother and I after a MP game gone bad, a graveyard of crying, broken controllers, and unfinished homework assignments.

Jehutus likes candlelit dinners, long walks on the beach, Star Wars, and personally finds the most important quality of video games to be the story. He's rated every video game since Duck Dodgers Starring Daffy Duck for the N64 and continues to assist his mother in her work from college at Washington and Jefferson College, PA. Expert or no expert, you still have to be patient when your mother calls asking where the R3 button is and how to get out of 'spidey sense'.

Hey Jehutus, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
