Next,Open Blog migration file and put the below code. here following path of migration file

Path: /database/migrations/2020_05_27_095534_create_blogs_table.php
<?php

use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;

class CreateBlogsTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('blogs', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('title');
            $table->text('body');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */

use Spatie\MediaLibrary\InteractsWithMedia;

class Blog extends Model implements HasMedia
{
    use HasFactory,InteractsWithMedia;

    /**
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $fillable = [
        'title',
        'body',
    ];
}

Create two routes one for show form and the second route send data to the server:

here following path of route fille

Path:/routes/web.php
<?php

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\BlogController;

/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/
Route::get('blog',[BlogController::class,'index'])->name('blog');
Route::get('blog/create',[BlogController::class,'create'])->name('blog.create');
Route::post('blog/store',[BlogController::class,'store'])->name('blog.store');
Step 6:Create Controller

Path:/app/Http/Controllers/BlogController.php
<?php

use App\Models\Blog;

class BlogController extends Controller
{
    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function index()
    {    
        $blogs = Blog::latest()->get();

        return view('blog.index',compact('blogs'));
    }

    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function create()
    {
        return view('blog.create');
    }

    /**
     * Write code on Method
     *
     * @return response()
     */
    public function store(Request $request)
    {
        $input = $request->all();

        $blog = Blog::create($input);

        if($request->hasFile('image') && $request->file('image')->isValid()){
            $blog->addMediaFromRequest('image')->toMediaCollection('images');
        }

        return redirect()->route('blog');
    }
