Go through the top entries and see which sites offer valuable information that you can paraphrase and add onto. Please do not plagiarize someone else’s content. It is easy enough for you to write quickly once you get the hang of this.
Experiment. Check your site statistics. Try blog ging once a week for a month. Then blog daily for a month. See how traffic varies based on the frequency of your blogs. Vary the length of your blogs.

This is not to say that websites are expensive. You don’t need to have a high-tech site with lots of moving parts and you don’t need to spend thousands of dollars to have someone create and maintain your site if you don’t want to.

Rest assured that social media audience are no fools and if you do your part, sooner or later, your hard work will pay off and they will be raving about your brand. Good luck!
