I'm still working on my new site - Unconvential News From Around The World | and I'm finally getting some visitors. So far from google analytics it says my bounce rate is 55.81%, average session time is 1:15 minutes and views are average 3 pages per session.

Is that good? Or should I be doing something else to engage my viewers? Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    55.81% is a really good bounce rate for blogs. You are going just right.

    Bounce rate doesn't matter that much. If you're promoting in social media it's inevitable. People are coming for the exact thing you're advertising, and may not stay any longer no matter what you do.
    Links in signature will not help your SEO. Not on this site, and not on any other forum.

    What's your excuse?

    One reason your target customers leave your site is a lack of readability. User experience begins when your content is readable and legible.

    To go along with the lack of readability comments - shorten your paragraphs, increase your font size, and improve your formatting and you definitely will see your bounce rate dip.
