This is my Blog. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
My Blog is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
My Blog, without me, is useless. Without my Blog, I am useless.

I must write my Blog true.
I must write more honestly than noobs who are trying to spread lies.
I must speak truth before they speak lies. I will...

Before you, I swear this creed:
My Blog and I are the defenders of video game players and culture everywhere.
We are the masters of noobs.
We are the saviors of gamer life.

So be it-
Until all video game player achievement is properly recognized and there are no noobs, but 1337!
