Which variant of English should I use when my target audience is the world?

I know that all variants of English ([American English](, [British English](, etc.) can be generally understood by everybody who knows any of the English variants. However, there are some regionalisms that can lead to ambiguity.
What are the things I must be aware of when the target audience (of my writing: book, blog, etc.) is the world?
