1. ### What's the easiest/fastest way to learn BLD?

Yes, I'm alive. I know I haven't visited the forums in more than a year now, but I figured I'd drop in and see how the blindfold cubing section is coming along. If you joined in January 2011, how could you possibly even remember me?
2. ### What's the easiest/fastest way to learn BLD?

It's great that you have enthusiasm, but here's the thing: you need to decide how much effort you're going to be able to put into it. As the previous three posters have already mentioned, Old Pochmann is a great way to begin learning to solve BLD. It's simple, intuitive, and requires the...
3. ### Possibly writing a book?

Depends. If I expect to sell more than 30 copies (which I don't at the moment), I may choose to upgrade to the Pro Plan which has a cost but will allow me to lower the price for buyers.
4. ### Possibly writing a book?

I'll do my best. I can't say anything more than that. I'll PM you my email address. Considerably more useful... I'm sure there are many things that are more useful than writing a book. But I'm not trying to be "ambitious", I'm just trying to combine two of my hobbies (cubing and writing)...
5. ### Possibly writing a book?

I've been gone for a while, and I just looked up TICT. Haha. Anyway, the only speedcubing book I know of is "Speedsolving the Rubik's Cube" by Dan Harris. I bought it, I liked it better than any of the online tutorials for solving a Rubik's Cube.
6. ### Possibly writing a book?

I'll look into it. But for now, I'm going to start writing the book after I finish my research (I need to review the methods, as I pretty much haven't solved a cube blindfolded in five months). If any blindfold cubers are willing to help me with revision and checking it over to see if it is...
7. ### Possibly writing a book?

Whoops, forgot to add that. That will probably come after Old Pochmann but before M2. Yeah, I was planning on using ImageCube for image generation. Would pictures of the cube at each state be specific enough? Yes.
8. ### Possibly writing a book?

Ah yes, of course. What do you think of this as the list of methods I explain (in order): Old Pochmann M2 R2 TuRBo BH I might get into freestyle, but once you understand BH and how it works, freestyle isn't that much more difficult.
9. ### Possibly writing a book?

I'll see what I can do about that. I'll see what I can do about that. My first step for now is writing the book. That will be the longest part, writing, revising, editing, rewriting, revising, editing, rewriting, etc.
10. ### Possibly writing a book?

Definitely example solves, I was already planning on that. Good algs... Old Pochmann and M2/R2 have pretty much set algs, but with methods such as 3OP I will probably include a variety of algorithms that do the same thing. Variety of methods - check. Example solves - check. E-Book -...
11. ### Possibly writing a book?

On my YouTube channel (which I haven't looked at in 5 months or so until today), a lot of people were encouraging me to write a book on the different BLD methods and how to use them. My question is, if I sold a book on amazon for $7 or$8 on how to solve BLD with different methods and...
12. ### Are you playing The Game right now?

Are you serious? 3 MONTHS.... why did I have to sign into Speedsolving today? I just lost.
