About
I finally have all three systems (^.^) yep took a while and some saving up also. I am a college student living in NY its a busy place with people who are always in a rush to get somewhere. I happen to be one of the few who take my time getting places im usually fashionably late. I like video games and im not a big fan of reading books. Out of all three systems i like my PS3 more thats why i have two of them a Japanese 20GB version and the 40GB US Version. I don't play my wii as much as before i have smash brothers and it just sits there collecting dust, and my 360 is only for the X-box exclusives im not really a fan of X-box and the whole idea of paying extra $$ to play on live.

Im eventually going to buy a Macbook and Probably a PC with Linux as well i enjoy computers and media and blogs and all that other good stuff. I dont read books much because i dont have the patience to wait for the story im the type of guy that likes the fast forward button sometimes ;-) I like anime and other geeky stuff im always on the go and i love destructoid mobile it helps me get through my day i dont have a laptop yet so it helps me greatly my cellphone that is. Um i think thats all for now until i can come up with more...

Hey Johnny_Storm, 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?
