Research: Use blogs that publishes content that is based on research ans is relevant to what your topic is.
Formatting - Your post need not be a circus. If you are not good with formatting, then stick to a theme that is light and descent in colors and the post layout. If you are good with trying new stuff then use that skill to better express through colors, fonts and layouts. Avoid colors that are dark and fonts that are overtly bright.
Spare time to read - Blogging is not just about writing but also about research and reading. Read as much as you can to learn new things and ideas that you can experiment with on your own blog.
