Yes. Blogging takes practice. Don't try to aim for perfection, especially on your first posts. I would say focus on what you want to write about and use a style that you feel comfortable.

While there are many articles that tout various 'blogging rules' and the like, I feel you want to blog for your own enjoyment first. While many people blog for the 'followers' and write content for that purpose, you risk the danger of feeling demotivated(writing on topics that don't interest you) and burnt out.

This recent article I found on blogging was quite inspiring.
