In 6 months? I would work on gaining readership (return visitors). Add an interesting article each day for the first few months. Then you can slow down to 1 or 2 per week. Go with paid traffic to the best articles. Also try to build an email list so you can notify your readers when you add posts.

Everything Rob said PLUS here is another tip...

Build up a following on Social Media networks such as fb, twitter, linkedin, pinterest and Instagram. Those people will share your content further (if it is a good content) so you can get even more exposure.

I'm just curious why I should add an article per day. Does this benefit for search engine rankings or somethings else?

I have not ever tried linkedin, pinterest and Instagram but from your suggestions, I would give them a go. Not sure these networks can bring more traffic.

The main (not only) reason I said to add an article a day at first was so your blog did not look like a ghost town. Also if readers see you are updating frequently, they have a tendency to come back more often. You have to give your readers a reason to come back often.

Contents are very important when it comes to the website. You need to add high quality and unique contents. Most of the users use the internet for gathering knowledge and a small amount of users use it for entertainment. Since you are creating a blog for the users then you need to think about what the user wants. First , your website should have easy navigation and UI and second, it should have great contents. But if you want to drive more traffic to your blog, then you need to create accounts in social media platform, to spread the news of your website. If you will not use the social media platforms, then most of the users would not even know that your website exists.
