Hello guys. Today my web design teacher asked me to write about how my blog has evolved since I first started it. I first started this blog eight months ago for a web design class. I basically only did it because it was an assignment for the class. However, now I really enjoy writing for this blog, and I not only do it as an assignment but for fun also. In the beginning, I thought that I would run out of ideas to talk about, but I am still able to find something to write about. I never thought that the blog would have an average of five views everyday. Last year I only had about 80 visitors, but this year I have already doubled that. I have views from over 30 different countries. Last year I only got views from 2 different countries. My vision for this blog has changed a lot because it has already surpassed my expectations. I plan to keep on talking about mini-games and tips & tricks as I run across them on the internet and as I play Minecraft. I would like to thank everyone who has subscribed and/or liked or even viewed my blog.
Keep on Minecrafting!

Hello Minecraftians! I’m going to share a few more tips and tricks.
Tip #1 – You only need two buckets of water for an infinite water source.
An infinite water source is where you can take water out from one water block using a bucket, and then it just refills itself from the water blocks next to it. First, mine a 1 by 3 by 1 hole in the ground. Then, place two buckets of water as the picture shows, and you will have an infinite water source. This is useful for the Skyblock mini-game since you have limited resources.
Tip #2 – Make a cobblestone base around your Nether portal in the Nether.
In the Nether, Ghasts can’t destroy cobblestone blocks with their fireballs, but they can disable portals. Build a base made of cobblestone around the portal you came through in order to protect it from the Ghasts.
Tip #3 – X-ray vision
Trying to find a cave, but haven’t had any luck? Just push a glowstone block into your head. This sounds very violent, but all you have to do is put a glowstone block on the end of a piston and activate it so that the glowstone block goes into your head. When you do this, you can see everything underground.
Tip#4 – Fireplace
Do you have a home built out of wood, but want a fireplace? No problem! Most of the time, when you build a house out of wood and light a fireplace, it will burn down, but all you have to do is experiment. To do this, recreate the area of the house that you want the fireplace in and test different ways to build a fireplace. Experiment with different materials that don’t light on fire in order to find a suitable fireplace that won’t burn your house down. Don’t let your house turn into this:
