FORMATTING + PRESENTATION:
You can find MUCH more detail (and illustrations) in this post.The post title should be short, pithy but clear. This will appear as large bold text, effectively your heading.
Provide clear sub-headings where relevant: adjust size, font, colour, bold.
Don't use underline or colour highlight.
Don't use Courier font.
Remember to highlight terminology with bold + pink.
Add relevant tags ('labels') to your posts.
Round box office up/down to a useful, memorisable figure, using k or m not 000 or 000,000.
Denote quotes of 2+ lines by changing font to Trebuchet, colour purple and clicking speech marks icon to indent. Provide the source; describe in a word or two, make bold -  are advisable, e.g.: [BritCinema blog post]
More guidance on providing sources, and quoting, here.Provide links as often as possible: if you're blogging on a film, making the film title (the first time you use it in a post) into an IMDB link is useful. If discussing box office, the boxofficemojo.com or the numbers.com link are useful. If quoting an article [source] or [article] are always expected. Always make it clear where your information comes from, even if its not a direct quote.
TIP: When adding images, videos or other embedded material, hit return, type ..., and go back to blank line before pasting in embed code. That will prevent later problems with adding more text. Before formatting a sub-heading or quote add a return/blank line with ... before highlighting text to format. That avoids having to re-format for 'normal' text. Same point for terminology: finish the sentence then format the terminology. If you've forgotten this, just copy some 'normal' text, paste it and type over it.Always give the director, year of release + budget of a film you're analysing. This applies to essays too (budget isn't vital here), eg:
This is England (Meadows, 2006) sparked Warp's first franchise and demonstrates convergence with TV... [I've set this out as I do for quotes]
