Targeting is the whole point of blogging for business. If your content isn't targeted at whatever you want to convert, then it doesn't make sense (unless it's a hobby blog just for fun).
Its not a hobby blog, though you can monatize hobby blog too.

I didnt get the question, How is blog different from website is basically you are asking. Is that right?
"I added blog to my business website this month"
So why add a blog section instead of adding articles to the site?

Blog posts and articles are same to me. But I avoid using the word"blog" or "blog post" within the site as google algo hates those words. I refer them as articles within the site.

That hockey stick spike in visitors is wonderful. Do you specifically wrote something with long tail keywords in your niche? Any improvement in SERPS?

Yes all long tail , ahrefs kd less then 10, low to moderate comp in keyword revealer.

A blog section can indeed fuel some traffic for the main site
Yes, that's the plan. I planning to sell a ebook or course too as other in my niche are doing.

Blogging is not a problem.. the real problem is Google has increased the indexing time! It is crawling on priority but showing up in the indexes is taking time!

Yes this is a problem. It seems narrower the niche its easy to get it indexed. The KGR thing is real, although i am not using KGR keywords here. But if the niche is narrow meaning less content on web so google algo is force to index somehow.
But could be just a theory.
Anyway, you gotta get 'em indexed.
