Blues and soloing in general is very much about playing phrases/melodies rather than a collection of “correct” notes (if I understand your question). Blues, with commonly 3 four bar phrases, is a great vehicle to get into this - eg. make up one little tune or riff with your available “correct” notes, repeat it 4 bars later (count if you don’t simply hear it yet) and play a similar line to round it all off in the last four bars.
You don’t need to fill up all the bars with soloing - leave a decent space after each of your melodic lines. Often less is better.

Hope I was on the right track for you there.
