Hi, have you considered to show the latest Blog post(s) on the JabRef homepage? I think, this would increase the number of users who would regularly read your Blog.
When I look at Feedly, a popular Newsfeed reader, I see that the JabRef Blog has only 8 followers:
In contrast, Docear, which presumably has a smaller user base than JabRef, has 157 followers
My assumption is that when you display Blog posts directly on the homepage, more readers will follow your Blog
