Make sure that you regularly use transition words to start a paragraph, especially if you are going to write a very broad topic that might require you to write many long passages. They would definitely help your readers absorb and arrange the ideas you will provide. In addition, it will help you organize your thoughts better.
Taking the time to think about a clear text structure before you start writing is a very important first step. While writing, think about the structure of your paragraphs, your use of signal words and the headings in your post. If you follow these ‘rules’ your blog post will be understandable and readable to your audience (also if your writing style is rather crappy).
One way to do this is by using transitions - words or phrases or techniques that help bring two ideas together.
