I am on the hunt for blazes to collect their rods, as well as the nether wart so I can make some useful potions.

Despite playing this game quite a lot, I often avoid the nether since it is pretty dangerous to traverse. I have honestly never found one. However, I recently went exploring and couldn't find a fortress for a pretty long time. Venturing too far from the portal makes me nervous.

Is there any good way to look for one? It would be greatly appreciated.

just look around for one. if you are afraid of getting lost in the nether bring items to make beacons with and a bow. ghasts' aren't that big of a problem, and the pigmen are passive.

first off write down your nether portal coords helps if you really get lost. other than that i just explore.. there are 3rd party programs that use minecraft code to generate your world when you input the seed so you can find stuff.. but some see that as cheating..

Bring some Flint and Tinder and make a trail of fire along the netherrack so you don't get lost.

Other than that, Nether fortresses are just another part of random code generation.
