Using the same image in several places isn't necessarily bad. I think it can actually be good UX if you use it for a recurring type of post. That way, your users will easily recognize this type of post while scrolling down your blog.

In terms of SEO I would consider if you can make the image more specific to each post and/or keyword (if that's possible with your post titles). For example, you might consider changing the ALT tag on a per-post basis or even download the image, change its title and re-upload it for each post so you can use different keywords.
