Thank you, I will try! Also so they tend to be at the bottom of the Nether or up high or which, so should I be going up or down to find one?

When I first entered the Nether, I just started tunneling straight forward for SOOOO long, which ended up getting me absolutely no where. Turns out the fortress was just a litle bit east of where my portal was.
Pro tip: Take along a stack of cobblestone and a stack of torches with you, then you can place a cobblestone and put a torch on top of it as you go along, that way you never get lost. Once you find a Nether Fortress, I would reccomend mining some Nether Brick and using it as a marker back to the fortress, that way you know which direction the fortress is from your portal.
For those who are curious: I got a TON of nether brick and nether fences from the fortress I found, about 40 Nether Warts, and I found a Blaze Spawner

And now I've got a railway to that original fortress with a wonderful blaze farm.

Bring lots of cobble with you. Place one down every so often (good to put one down where you can still see the last one) and use it as a "breadcrumb" trial to get back to your portal. And then just go out searching. As others have said, try not to travel north-south direction if you can help it (migth need to for short distances to get around lava, but keep it generally in an east-west direction as much as you can).
I also found it works best to look out of the corner of your eyes. The fog seems to be much less if you use your peripheral vision than it is looking straight ahead.
