Site Update: Community Blogs patches *incoming*   |   Report a bug
Hello! I'm Sinnum, a name I've used since my druid in Diablo II. I don't play sports games, but I play everything else. Favorite genres are Action, RPG, Shooter, Fighting, Puzzle and Strategy. That's pretty much every game >.> Anyway, favorite games go to Final Fantasy Tactics, Phantasy Star Online Ep 1 & 2, Luminous, Diablo II, and Otogi 2.

I do watch a shitton of anime as well and am always looking for more to be recommended. Favorites, in order of favorite, are Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann (who the fuck do you think I am!?!?!?) Soul Eater (Tamashii no kyoumei!) and Code Geass (/davidbowie). Any you can suggest that are awesome would be good. Genre can be any, I did like Lucky Star.

In real life I'm an Electrician in the Air Force stationed in Japan. Yes, Japan is as awesome as you think. Yes, I have pix of Japan. Yes, I was at TGS '09 trying to find the Destructoid crew. Yes, I failed =(. Anyway, I also listen to a lot of music and my taste spans over all genres in that too. I like to go running, pretend to do curl ups, write on calendars, and eat good nom noms. I'm also a part time philosopher about things that philosophers think about. I'm a Taurus and INFP so I don't get offended... like ever... I'm different shades of brown and I used to have an afro in high school.

Other than that, shoot me a message about anything. I love meeting new people.

Hey Sinnum, 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


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?
