Featured Pictures: New Project + Blog Updates (285/365)

Hello everyone! This post is going to be a little different from what we normally do on the blog. First, I am going to show you our latest project which has the potential to be quite awesome if we do it right. Then, I am going to talk a little bit about the blog and preview some future posts. Let’s begin.

Tyler had the idea of starting something new on this blog, a Random Minecraft Project of the month. Now, while I can’t guarantee that we are going to build something new every month, we are doing something for this month.

A while ago (nearly 3 and a half months ago to be exact), Tyler and I talked about starting a new project. This project is…

A Sky Castle!

Tyler came up with the Random Minecraft Project idea, I came up with building a Sky Castle…mainly because we said we were going to build one but never did. We started work on the castle yesterday, and here is what we have done so far.

We are playing on Superflat so we have plenty of space. There is our island. We plan on working on the bottom of it once we finish with the castle, to make it look like it was torn out of the ground. You’ll see.

So far, we have built a tower and we are getting a basic outline for the castle. We might expand the island/castle in the near future, but, for now, this is what we have.

Tower interior. The wood outlines are where the different floors will be; we just haven’t filled them in yet.

That is all so far. We hope you have enjoyed what you’ve seen here so far. There will be more to come.

Now onto the next part of this post. I know we usually talk about the blog on Sundays alongside the Minecraft/Mojang news, but I decided to talk about it tonight anyway.

Now, if you are reading this post, let me just say thank you for coming to our blog. No matter how you came here, we appreciate that you are checking out our work.

If this is your first time here or if you have been here before we would like to hear some feedback. If you love our blog, great! If you don’t like it or if there is something you don’t care for as much, that’s fine too. We want to hear all feedback, positive and negative. There are a number of ways you can do this.

  • Like a post
  • Rate a post (by the way, you can rate/like posts at the bottom of the post/page)
  • Leave a comment
  • Like our Facebook page
  • Follow our blog

By rating a post, you can let us know exactly what type of posts you like, and which ones you don’t. We have actually gotten one poor rating on a post before. Those poor ratings are just as helpful as good ratings, it let’s us know what not to do again (in that case it was to try and write a crappy post in 10 minutes 🙂 ).

Also, we are going to try and do more with our Facebook page. Usually, we have just posted links on there (recently we’ve done a crappy job of that). I want to start doing more with the page. And, the more likes we have, the cooler kinds of things we can do.

Okay, I think that is the end of my speech. I just want to end with saying that we have two special days coming up. One of them, is two weeks from tomorrow, October 26th, which marks our 300th post! We are going to try and do something cool with that post. Also, Halloween is coming up and we have a cool post planned for that day. So be sure to check out those posts once they’re published.

That is all. Thank you for listening to my speech, please leave some kind of feedback, we would very much appreciate it, and, as always, Happy Mining!
