About
When news spread around the land that The Podcastle was to be no more, One man stood up. He quickly rallied the people around and declared that this should not be the end of European centric gaming news discussion for the Destructoid community. This man was I, Guyver 0. Not long after that fateful day I set out on a quest to search the land and find people who shared the same idea's as myself. After weeks of journeying to various neighbouring town, I began to hear tales of a man, a man of great skill and expertise. I realised I would need this man if I were to complete my quest. I asked locals where I would find this man. The locals told me that this man owned a shop, a "Photo" shop, in a neighbouring town. I jumped on my trusted steed and rode to this town. I knew this man was special as I gazed upon his "Photo" shop. I walked in, and he was sitting behind a desk, drawing and craving and shaping and colouring. He looked up to me and told be his name, Shakey 1245. Shakey 1245 of "Photo" Shop. I told him my quest and before I was finished pitching him the idea, he had agreed to join me. We journey for several months looking for another to join us. We'd fought dragons and danced with elves. Our quest was over, failed. That was until we had reached the far edge of the kingdom. There, in a small remote town, we meet a young boy playing outside in a field by himself. His name was Havoc Fang. Is family had been killed many moons ago and know he played in fields. Myself and Shakey agreed that we would look after the boy, teaching him the way to be a man, without infringing on his power of youth and innocence. Soon after we set off for the Podcastle. However we were too late. We were greeted with with an old, broken castle, falling at the seems. We scourged the grounds for clues of where the three legendary inhabitants had gone. Then we'd found it, it may not have been a castle, but in our minds it was just as good. On the grounds of the Castle, there stood a Cottage, this is where we would make our Podcast for the European masses. This is not the end of the tale, it is merely the end of the beginning.

Hey The Podcottage, 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 Put a face on your blog. Your profile pic can be a mug shot of you, or something that represents your hobbies. Make it stand out from the crowd.

Upload an avatar and (optional) change your username

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?
