First and most important “Research”:-
No one is perfect in this world.Even if you are an expert in your field,You should do some research before posting anything on your blog.Because there would already be many other posts on the same topic on internet and if want yours to be the best then you would need to gather all the information and mention every thing about the topic in your post.

Second is keyword research(for ranking in search engines):-

In order to bring people to read your article, you need to do some on-page seo as well and keyword research is one important part of it.
Keyword research is one of the most important factor of ranking a site in google and you need to do it properly.
Crafting your post:-
After getting ideas about the topic and your keywords, now it is time to start writing your post.
Use the list of important points and first describe the topic in your first paragraph.
Then use h1 and h2 tags and list your points with brief descriptions.Write in a way like you are talking to someone.It gives good impression.
Don not write long paragraphs instead write short sentences because they are easily understood and ranks better as well.
Write every thing in detail and if you post is tutorial then capture images or create a video and add it to your post.It helps in understanding of reader and makes you post seo friendly as well.
Use images in your posts:-

Do not end your post without writing summary or conclusion.You can also ask your readers about their opinion on the topic depending on the type of post.
Do not make it long.A few lines is enough because if you write things which you have already mentioned in the post, it will make your reader leave your site, so try not to write things again and again.
And at the end i would like to say that don’t make your post very long unless it is very interesting because if your post is very long the reader will just click back and will not read the complete post.
