If you position your blog as news, then you need to add news several times a day, if as an author, then at least 3-5 times a week new entries should appear on the blog (set a mode for yourself and try to stick to it). It is important that the information is:
topical (arouse interest among users, desire to comment).
In your posts, do not forget to use the keywords for which you are promoting your blog. Articles can be linked to each other - put links on each other.
