chupacabrathing 's blog

I got my nickname when I was 16 while visiting my girlfriend Kelly at the time in El Salvador. She was an exchange student who had to move back home, I went to visit her for christmas and new years. I do not speak any spanish, so during my time there conversations with anybody other than her direct family was very limited.

So I ran around in the streets screaming "I am the Great White Chupa Cabra", when at a bar or diner, i would also say it. My girlfriend thought it was cute, and the peoples reaction was funny. I would say it will I laid 20 bucks down at the Bar and said drinks are on the Chupa Cabra....and when i gave a 5 dollar tip to a lady, she thought it was a joke. She started crying when she realized it was really her tip (I guess it was 3 days pay maybe even a weeks worth at the time.)

I've seen a man laying in the street being stripped of his clothes and belongings, no movement my guess he was dead. I rode with Rafa (Kellys brother) to some guys house and waited in the car. He went in and shot him...come to find out it was the guy who murdered his girlfriend in a car accident while he was driving drunk, before i got there. The man was not guilty of any charges and laughed about it. I didn't know what he was doing till after it had been done.

Hey chupacabrathing, 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?
