When you're working in tunnels, be sure to carry hundreds of torches with you and light every step of the way as you go. If any area reaches a low light level, or no light level at all, it allows Mobs to spawn. If you don't light your tunnels, they'll sneak up behind you and kill you, even if you've checked your tunnels before. A helpful tip for the miners.
If you enjoy the challenge of Normal Mode or harder, but don't like how an explosion by a Creeper kills you instantly, keep this in mind: Most armor will protect you JUST enough to survive a creeper blast. Armor seems like it may not be all that useful, and can sometimes be overlooked, but it's worth your time to use it. Iron and Diamond armor work the best!
If you're like me, you've had trouble finding diamond ore. Well, I've figured out a trick to it. All you have to do is dig down until you hit the bedrock. Go up three blocks, and start digging a tunnel in any direction that's one block wide, and three blocks high. Dig until you just can't dig anymore. Move over two blocks, and start digging your way back. You're almost guaranteed to hit Diamond Ore soon enough.
