You can find multiple posts on Lawyerist about why a blog can help with marketing and jumpstart a new practice Creating a blog, however, is just the first step. A recent article indicates that content, interaction, audience, and support are the most important factors in creating a successful blog.
Your blog should provide potential clients and other attorneys with valuable content. Sheer volume does not equate to good content though. Readers should be able to take away at least one good piece of knowledge from each post.
