For better writing, you need to first arrange your content. Split your content into sections and give each section a heading. Make every heading very clear that what it is about. Describe it clearly to remove the ambiguity between all the headings.

After writing headings, add notes highlighting key points you want to discuss. Writing notes would be helpful in writing the main content later on.

You must understand their perception and capture their interest within first few lines so that they love to dive through your post and they continue reading it.
You must give them the incentive to keep them reading. Show them that how you can relate to the user and the position they are in. You must explain to them how your post is going to solve their issues. So that they love to read it.

It’s the time for your first draft. Walk through each of your headings and expand on the nodes you made earlier. Do not worry about spelling and grammar right now, just focus on getting your message across to your audience. Your content must be clear and meaningful.
There is a difference in writing a blog post and writing a term paper. Do not feel any burden or pressure while writing, write freely. Make your writing personal and try making a connection with the reader. Dont hesitate to show your true personality with your writing.
