Dear Crafter, below are the stuff that will help keep you alive, my survival guide.

Welcome To Minecraft.
-  Congratulations on spawning, welcome to the world of Minecraft. Hopefully you spawned into a good area. Witch consists of forest, healthy amount of animals, a cave, water and many other things that can be useful. The world of Minecraft can be very beatiful and peaceful at times and can be dangerous at other times. But this will help you get through those times.
Get Aquainted
Get aquainted with your surroundings, you might be there for awhile, while your still new to the world, and when you know whats going, you can expand to werever you want.

Gathering Wood
- Gathering wood is the very first step. This will help you build many things that will help you get far into the world. There are 6 different types of wood, Birch, Jungle, Oak, Spruce, Acaia, and Dark Oak. You will probably mostly see oak wood as they are more common, but it doesn't matter what type of wood, they are all the same. Wood can make many things such as planks, crafting table, sticks, weapons, tools and others. Get wood from the trees by punching them or having an axe, but you're new so we're not there yet. Craft these woods into planks by hitting E and putting it on your grid witch 3x3

Now that you're done with this step lets move to the next one.

Building a Base.
Building a base is the next step into getting settled into your world. This is our 2nd step so when you do something you have a place to stay and be safe from the mobs. (we'll get there.) Your first house should not be big, but you can build it however you want using whatever you want but you should usually use wood planks. It should be able to help support you and should be able to have the basic stuff to get you through your first day. It should consist of a bed, crafting table, a furnace, a chest and a torch to keep the mobs away.

Now that you have finished building your house and have the supplies you need, we can move to the next step, mining. Mining can be very dangerous when you dig straight down. That is because you have no idea what can be under the next block, sometimes it can be another block, witch you could be very lucky, other times can be lava in witch that sucks. There should be caves nearby in witch you can go mining, make sure you have something to help you get back up. Before you go mining you need acouple of pickaxes in healthy condition, food, torches, and blocks to help get back up. Mining can benefit you very much, you can find iron, gold and the rare diamond. These things can help make better and stronger stuff such as weapons , tools and armor. Hopefully you get lucky and find some diamond. Gold can be weak but it can be useful.

The Dangers of Minecraft, Mobs.
Mobs can appear in both words. (Minecraft and Nether). They will attack you on sight and will kill you. The enderman, witch are black, have purple eyes and are tall will attack you if you stare at them. Mobs can catch fire in the light, and they can survive in the shades of trees in light and when it gets to night. Some mobs you kill will give you items you can use to build things, such as spiders give webs witch you can use to build bows and fishing rods, creepers will give you powder to help make TNT, and skeletons will give you arrows and bones (the bones you can use to help tame wolves.). Defeating mobs by hand takes awhile witch is why you can use a sword or arrow witch is helpful when fighting creepers. Beware of them in witch if you get to close they will blow up stuff, witch is why you don't wanna be around your house and they can kill you.

Farming is very useful, using seeds such as wheat, carrot seeds and others. You can grow these and help make food, you can help grow seeds witch using a hoe.
Gathering food is a very important thing, this will heal you and keep you alive. The animals such as cows, pigs, sheep (I think) etc. They give off food that you can cook and eat to help you.

Tools like pickaxes, shovels, hoes, swords and bows are somethings you can use and will use during your time here. Pickaxes, swords and bows are somethings you will use during your time here. They will help you defeat your foes and keep you alive. Shovels and hoes you can use during your time here, especially if you're a farmer. A shovel will help you get through the dirt and a hoe will help you plant seeds. Wheat seeds are important, they will help you make food such as cake and bread
Helmets, armor, boots are the gear that will protect you if you get hurt or fall. They can be made of leather witch you can get from cows, iron, diamond , and gold witch you can all get from mining. You can choose not to have them but I suggest you do. 

The End
You are well ready for the world of Minecraft, I have taught you everything you need to know. I hope this helps you when you need it. Share this with whoever whom might need it too. Please mine and journey safe.

Although the usage of spoilers is usefull I do think you went to far with it. If you open up all of them it is long because of the pictures. Put only the pictures in spoilers and the blog is of nice length in my opinion.

Good luck in the contest although you're competition!
