I have noticed that starting to write on a blank page is a lot harder as compared to writing when there is an outline. While writing blog posts, I create an outline of a blog post one day in advance. All I do is write down the headers/topics that I plan to cover. Sometimes, I even write subheadings for main topics.
Now when I have to write the actual blog post, I work on it one topic at a time. I have found this to be extremely effective. Since the task is to only write a few lines about a topic/subtopic, I find a lot less resistance in my brain as compared with starting on a blank sheet.
