    Well, :D blog has one "g" to start. Make sure you spell things correctly and don't put in random capitals. Your first few pieces shouldn't be posted- compare them to real blog posts and make a list of traits you need to improve. Then work on them ONE by ONE. Each new piece. Maybe take a free Udemy writing class. THEN edit a couple of your pieces and post them all at once, but put down the dates you actually wrote them on so it's not suspicious. (If you post your pieces one at a time to start, expect to lose readers fast. You have to start with a good time investment.)

    After that, the # of posts don't matter. If people can't tell your site was just released, that's enough. Make sure if they click "Home" it looks professional, no matter the number. Organize/tag/social-media share everything. A paywall can both help and not help too.

    Very high quality informative article is very important for your site, it should be user friendly and Min 2000+ words article. Update atleast minimum one article per day.Also build your social media profiles and share your articles on your pages it is also get visitors and traffic to your blog.

    Thanks for the tip! I was typing the post on my phone hence the reason for random capitals and "blog" was autocorrected xD

    Thank you so much for all the info. Especially that I should post multiple post and not single handedly which was I thought was best to start with. Thanks alot! :)

    Thanks! So a good example of when to share my posts would be if my article answers something on Quora very well? Should I then make the link do-follow or no-follow. I'm not really sure on when to use do-follow and no-follow.

    If your answer is really manual and informative post for users means you can make do-follow link it is really good power to your site.

    To start off, I would recommend writing long super-informative articles that serve a purpose. Find out topics that people need to go back to time and time again and create a post that answers that in full detail. Also, be open to guest posting, that's a great way to get some quality content for your site. However, be strict and do not allow poor quality or promotional posts. All the best.

    It all depends on your niche

    Most niches don't require that much content

    I suggest you REVERSE ENGINEER the most successful blogs in your niche

    Use that as a starting point

    Also, focus on PROMOTING your content instead of PUBLISHING a lot

    How would I promote it? Linking on forums or postning to social media? How do I make sure it doesn't get penalized for spamming?

    You'll get penalized for spamming if you just post links

    Try engaging and contributing to or starting discussions

    There are so many places to promote
    FB groups
    FB pages
    Twitter
    Forums
    Quora
    etc etc

    The key is to ENGAGE and BE CREDIBLE
