Can somebody take the time to analyze me as a chess player

CleverOak

I need somebody better than me to analyze some of my games and my play style to tell me how I can improve. Thank you

Easily answered.  

At your level, the only style there is, is Blundering.

CleverOak

Type I if you will

How do I fix it

Opening Principles:

1. Control the center squares – d4-e4-d5-e5

2. Develop your minor pieces toward the center – piece activity is the key

3. Castle

4. Connect your rooks

Tactics...tactics...tactics...

 

Pre Move Checklist:

1. Make sure all your pieces are safe. 

2. Look for forcing move: Checks, captures, threats. You want to look at ALL forcing moves (even the bad ones) this will force you look at, and see the entire board. 

3. If there are no forcing moves, you then want to remove any of your opponent’s pieces from your side of the board. 

4. If your opponent doesn’t have any of his pieces on your side of the board, then you want to improve the position of your least active piece. 

5. After each move by your opponent, ask yourself: "What is my opponent trying to do?"

And probably the best thinig you can do to improve is to STOP playing blitz, and bullet.

More specifically, don’t play anything under 5+5 blitz if you want to be better otb

Like you said when playing bullet I can’t do this so I will stop

Play me(you will get rekt, but it’s worth the experience)

not tonight though because I am tired

CleverOak

Ok, I will. Can anyone post my best game and my worst so I can see it

You need time to look at the board and see what your opponent did and how you should react, and also what squares are being controlled.

That takes time so even 5|5 is too fast for you, play something with an increment. 15|10 is a starter although I'd advocate playing some proper slow chess games, 30|45.

You are careless. Check the coordination of your pieces. Sometimes your knights are not moving at the opening and some of your pieces are attacking alone. Your king is always exposed. You have no opening signature moves (play your favorite opening). Your opening is not good. Better to be familiar with book openings (main lines).

CleverOak

Dang, I thought there was at least some upside to my game but I guess I’m just bad

CleverOak

What is the number one best strategy for me to get better?

CleverOak
I need serious help

Ok man. There is no need to feel bad. You are only 500, and naturally, you have truckloads to improve. It is perfectly normal.
As for improving, there is one stage you could do better. Don't even bother looking out for any tactics or that kind of stuff at this point. At this point, every time you move a piece, take the time to check you aren't hanging any pieces. Do this, and you will win a lot more games.
