Don't hesitate to explain the need that led to your work.

Content of the post

The content is free, note that images have great value, and that it may be interesting to illustrate your words. Similarly if you provide technical procedures (commands, configuration, code ...) prefer the text version rather than a screenshot.

The reader can easily reproduce your example. Finally if the code is too important. You can provide a foldable component, an attachment at the end of the post, or a link to a Github repo (for example that of the punch). You keep an article easy to read while providing useful technical sources.
