About
Who the heck am I? Well, to be quite honest It's a question I ask myself alot.(Not to be all boo hoo or anything) I'm in high school. Im one of those teenagers who puts up a good show for people at school, then I get home and nerd out. To be totally honest, some people would say I am a cool kid, but that is unbelievably untrue. I am friends with all the kids at my school, from stoner,jock, ghetto kids and nerds galore, and I have insecurities too, but that's beside the point.

I got started playing video games at around 6 or 7 years old. One day, I was in my Mom's room after coming home from school. My mom told me to stay in there and not come out. My mom eventually came into the room and plopped something rectangular in my lap (Rather half heartedly too). Then with a sigh of depression (Almost as if to say "what have I done"?) she walked out. I picked up the thing in my lap and after a half a second of confusion, I screamed "A GAMEBOY ADVANCE". And then...silence. I booted it up and started playing the game in the cartridge. Sorry to say but I can't remember the name of it. Some kind of crappy jrpg. I was too young to hate it.

I bet you, that's the one thing my mom whishes she had never done. Now I'm an avid gamer and an awesome older brother, who passes everything he knows about video games down to the younger generation.

I got the Idea for my gamer tag, one day not to long ago. My friends and I decided we would do let's play video's (I'll put a link up as soon as I get it). So we mutually decided on code names. Mine was generally anything that has to do with toast. So if you start seeing toast on the internet it's probably me...Unless it's toastedjelly. He's someone else.

As of now, I am playing, Skyrim, LA NOIRE, Saints Row The Third, Batman Arkham City, Minecraft, Terraria and Portal 2 co op with my totally un-cooperative brother. My favorite Video Games would have to be, Skyrim, Skyward Sword, One of the pokemon's (I can't remember. something about valuable gems), Minecraft, Batman Arkham City and other stuff. I know there isn't alot of old games in there, but I'm only 14. Anyway... thanks for reading my life story. (The, like, 3 of you)

Hey Toastycow, 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?
