Well, looks like someone needs Snowyo��s help again! So today, bros, I am going to teach you something. Something that only the best and bravest can do. Something that separates the Parilso�� from the Cyprezzo��s. Something, that Io��m going to tell you how to do, right now.


Snowyo��s Quick steps to being Awesome.


1. LISTEN TO THIS: YARGBLARGEN AWESOMENESS!



2. GET YOURSELF SOME KILLER PAIR OF SHADES! (ALL the ladies will want you!)

iDkEjpg



3. BE MANLY. Even if youo��re a girl, BE MANLY


4. BLAME PARIL. If youo��re milk curdled BLAME PARIL. If you get banned from a server, BLAME PARIL. If Paril wants to blame you, BLAME PARIL. Nuff said.


5. LOOK AT CUTE KITTENS ON THE INTERNET.

^^^^^ They're talking about the mods!



6. READ THE REST OF THIS BLOG!


Wait, what? The last one actually sounded reasonable!


Yes, I am here to be teaching you about the art of being awesome in everything Minecraft. It wono��t be just about your submissions, but also about yourself, and how to effectively o��be knowno��.


Io��m not sure if I want to start off on a good note or a bad note so, well, leto��s start at the start. EVERYONE knows Dicso_, right? Well, the main reason Disco is so popular is Being awesome.. If he had never shown his ability to anybody, do you think heo��d be as famous as he is now? Or Block_Fortress, as another example. Without advertising, there would be no Block_Fortress, no o��creative redefinedo��. Thato��s what Io��m saying. Everyone wants to be famous, yet only the people who know how to advertise themselves WELL have a chance at becoming famous.


So recently some people have come out saying that theyo��d o��never get popular since they cano��t get noticedo�� and tend to blame that fact on the popular people. Well, in all honesty, ito��s really their own fault. Io��m not having a go at anyone here, Io��m just suggesting that maybe the lack of what I like to call o��Awesomeo�� techniques may be the fact that you mightno��t have those 500 views you were hoping for! So sit back, enjoy, and hope you understand what Io��m about to say!


These are optional and you know, generally, you dono��t have to follow it. Unless you feel like, you know, getting those 500 views!


1. Image


Yep, 1 word. Image is almost the biggest part to being awesome in Minecraft. They define what you do, and the amount of talent you wish to showcase. Let me put it into a bit of perspective. Youo��ve worked hours or even weeks on a project. You post it. It is of the quality that even Notch himself would respect. You get 17 views, and only your own, single diamond. Do you know why? You showed a picture like this:





However, if you HAD used a picture that uses some amount of photoshop, and a little bit of photography skill, you could have had thousands of views. But o��imageo�� isno��t JUST about a physical image. Image is about YOUR reputation, how people perceive you to be. Metaphysical image is what REALLY makes you place first in a race of hundreds.


Leto��s put this theory into an account. Two major parts of Minecraft are the Trolls/Griefers, and the Legends. Trolls, they have a bad image. They dominate Minecraft, yes, but they exude what you would call a o��bad imageo�� Same things apply to Griefers. Honestly, theyo��re both a bit of a turnoff. However, Legends are known to have a good reputation. Without the legends, we wouldno��t have Yogscast, The Word of Notch, or any other Minecraft fanatics. People wouldno��t have their favourites on servers. There would be no class difference on Minecraft. (Whatever happened to the separation of the classes!) Which, is actually a pretty big thing. You would not have anyone you wanted to follow. Ito��s as simple as that!


So how do you get to earn a o��good imageo��? Simple


a) Be yourself.
For most people, this would instantly win the hearts of millions. Rova, for example, radiates class and sophistication, which practically earns the respect of many people. But, there are always exceptions, and I change my earlier statement to o��Someo�� people have the personality to do that. If you dono��t think you do, move to b)





b) Fake it!
Io��m not saying you should completely fake who you are, but if you dono��t think you have the personality and pizzazz to o��wowo�� a few people, instead of blaming everyone else, try changing it up a bit. Instead of ranting at a particular thing, find something to compliment. Positive is ALWAYS better than negative (except for batteries, you need both!) and people who are positive, you will usually find, are A LOT more popular than those who speak of dark evils and black magiks. Not that Io��m saying thereo��s anything wrong with that, but you have to try to aim and please the people! Minecraft is a wonderful place, but ito��s full of judging people. Thato��s why you have to learn how to mix it up and make yourself interesting. Most of you know Tobuscus or Bashur. Theyo��re both very interesting people within the Minecraft community. I cano��t teach you exactly how to act; thato��s up to the individual and each circumstance!

bii) Fake it more!
Yep, thereo��s a second part to it. If you want to become popular, you have to THINK you are. Thereo��s no point in being entirely humble and saying youo��re not; you will usually find that you crash and burn quite easily. Io��m scared of sounding clichéd, but you have to BELIEVE IN YOURSELF! If youo��re on a server, and you act like a noob, you will be treated like a noob. Io��ve done a field test. Io��ve gone into a major server and acted like I owned the place. People were almost kneeling before me shouting my name in honor! They were giving me free stuff and they all thought I was an owner! When putting this into practice, you want to be certain, but sweet. Thato��s all it is. Thato��s how you become AWESOME~!



c) Build something awesome.
You dono��t have to be the next disco or members of the ABS, but having an awesome build really helps. You want to be awesome? Then DO NOT make a tiny little dirt house. The way to check if your thing is awesome or not is to ask someone else on a server or a friend in game. If they say ito��s not that great, tear it down, or keep on improving on it till they say ito��s awesome. And ito��s really good to have your ego inflated as well, which is why Checking Your Work from Others is a main point to being awesome!


d) Appeal to the Minecraft community.
This is usually done through either good builds, funny lets plays, or doing things that relate to Minecraft. Such as making green colored pancakes and turn them into creepers and call them CreeperCakes. Or making the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song on note blocks. (Both are my ideas, guys, Io��ve done them both before xD) However you choose to do it, you have to keep your Minecraft stuff minecrafty. Thato��s how you appeal to Minecraft!


e) Add class and style to whatever you do
Walking on a server? o�� Walk with style. Jump every now and then, kill a passerby.
Building in Minecraft? o�� Add fire to every possible place to make it look awesome. Note: Dono��t burn down your build.
Building on a server? o�� Add has much glowstone and redstone lamps as possible. Pick a dark part of the map which everyone goes past, and light up your build! Simple as that!
Want to be cool? o�� Tell them you fought a bearshark singlehandedly while mining for diamonds. Thato��ll get you respect.


f) (corny but true) Believe in yourself
You have no idea how much a little bit of belief can turn you from noob to master in a matter of hours. Minecraft will be your oyster, and you the bird that tries to pry it open! Give yourself a bit of credit! You may not be as bad as you think you are!


Anyhow bros, thato��s enough from me today. I hope you enjoyed my little spiel, and I also hope you could use this information in the future to HELP FURTHER YOUR SUCCESSFULNESS ON MINECRAFT!


TL;DR: Here, Io��ve got a few quick steps for you
1. Get diamonds diamonds and more diamonds on a server. The more you have, the more respected youo��ll be.



2. Make a noteblock song, it instantly makes you as cool as apple pie!



3. BE A PIRATE!!! ~ Jesuitical



Hahah, Have fun bros,


~Snowy Out.

to be awesome you must be a cat and to be a cat you must be awesome, it is a never-ending paaradox, you cannot just join, you must be fabricated into it at the beginning of time, even before the times of the prime-evil soups...
