Do not post in forums which does not allow to put hard coded textual links to your website. Do not forget to put archor text (if it supports HTML input) to your signature link.
Try to recall the name of the forums you were member once before you created your website. Go and login there and change the signature. It has additional benefit of getting not noticed by forum owner as your posts are buried behind many posts. They will give solid backlinks. Do not spam.

Do not post at around the same time by your clock everyday. Google will think you are using some automated software to post and penalize you.
Increase the post frequency when the number of visitors are getting less. For that, keep some emergency article written beforehand.
Write evergreen articles. For example, this post will be relevant years after years.
