When producing blog posts, even when it is only a few paragraphs, takes me a long time. Most of my time seems to be spent converting my ideas into writing. It is really hard to write something that "sounds right". How can I speed this up without affecting the quality of my blog post?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
Write out the main ideas first to build the skeleton for the post. Then continue adding the 'meat' for each idea and finish up with a nice title.
You can try a keyboard lay-out that's optimized for faster typing with more accuracy using less energy.
The Dvorak Simplified Keyboard claims to use less finger motion, increases typing rate, and reduces errors compared to the standard QWERTY keyboard. Be sure to read through the Wikipedia article, as well as the DVZine which takes a fine to read comic approach to explaining Dvorak...
Other keyboard lay-outs include Colemak and other fully optimized lay-outs using statistics, but the problem with these is that they aren't as general available as Dvorak and thus you need to create your own lay-out. As where Dvorak is listed under United States on Windows and can be load using
Check this online keyboard anaylyzer if you want to compare characteristics of the different lay-outs.
Warning: Switching to a different lay-out will decrease you speed for some months depending on how much you write on a daily basis, up to a point where it will excel the speed of QWERTY. I've been a Dvorak typist for three years and don't need to think about it anymore.
Another warning: You will unlearn QWERTY; it would be a pain for me to type this answer in QWERTY...
Write notes while you are thinking about what to include in the blog post. Then when you come to write it you have most of the text already.
