How on earth do I go about writing a blog?

A few days ago, Ryan asked us to start writing blogs, so we could share our areas of expertise and the community could get to know the people behind the work.

So, I sat down at my computer, put some music on, opened up a fresh Google Doc… and realised I have no idea how to write a blog. I’m not even sure where to start. I’m not a blogger, I’m a designer for Pete's sake!
