Post Ideas: At times you will just run out of ideas for post not sure what to do. use google and apps like Evernote to note down all that ticks in your mind. Something will surely turn into a new post.
Picture talk: Use of images attracts more eyeballs. It is humanitarian. Even if it is a data centric post or a theoretical one, have an image that speaks significantly for your post.
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.
