The most effective and agile way to success in producing anything and then acquiring its mass recognition is to distinct and differentiate it from the rest. This is more than true for the blogging phenomenon.
The Blogosphere has transformed in many ways ; some for the better (the technology and tools these days are much more advanced) and some for the worse. The downside of commencing out at this point in time is that for every topic there seems to be many blogs already, and many more popping up every day – the web is becoming more and more littered with topics from every field as people discover personal publishing and its ease of use and its lightness on pocket and mind.
It’s also become a more competitive business on some levels and in some segments some of the co-operative spirit of blogging has begun to fade as people build their empires. The nascent nature of blogging is being alarmingly changing as the community culture seem to be diminishing rapidly. That’s another matter, but the thing is that distinction is inherent in the nature of world and will remain so always, so keep on stressing to make you apart from the crowd.
