Minecraft, oh Minecraft that game for "people with too much time". Well I disagree and I don't just disagree because
Blogging. Blogging is a sandbox, now let's imagine you just bought yourself a great big sandbox. As you get inside you see lumps. Plain old lumps. As you begin to think about what you are going to build. You go back in to your memories and in your memories you pick up your personal events your background knowledge and your experiences. This information may take you a split second to pick or it may take you a while to collect. You only think about the most important events in your life. If some events in your life are extremely strong then you would think about them easily. Although if you haven't had such a bumpy life it would take a while to pick out those small events in your life.
Ok, now that we have your events. Let's switch over to Minecraft. You open Minecraft and you select single player and you create a new world. This world is plain with hills, trees, ponds and oceans. They are all you can see. But now that you have your events you begin to build. You build a house that represents you. Imagine that when you where born you got a Red towel from your parents and you still have the same towel till today. So using that background knowledge you like the colour red and you build a red house. As you continue to build your red house. Your friend comes to see what your doing. He likes your house. But when he was born he got a yellow towel from his parents. So he decides to build his own yellow house.
Now speaking about blogging. Ever heard of this quote? "Two heads are better than one". Its a saying, and in this post it means that you can get better quality posts with collaboration. So you and your friend decide to build a house together. But hows that going to work. Red and yellow? Half red half yellow?
This sometimes takes a while to decide. But sometimes you find you had more of a connection with your friend than you thought you had. So after a few minutes you and your friend decided to mix red and yellow together. So you make an orange house! As you build you come up with more ideas together and you begin to build a castle. With mixed ideas through out the castle. Two thrones an different styles. Two bedrooms and different styles. But one main idea that sounds two times as good and that's why Minecraft helps to understand how much collaborating on a post can make it so much better. Although sometimes if its personal people such as your friend or even your teacher won't be able to help with the ideas of the writing, but instead they will help with the spelling! :P
Now that I have explained how blogging is highly coneccted to Minecraft. You should now understand a lot more on what blogging but just incase heres a shorter version from one of my other posts.
"Its like a sand box. You can build, houses, castles, dungeons and pyramids. You build from your background knowledge, you build from your experiences and you build about yourself that's why I love blogging."… and Minecraft!
