I know you aren't supposed to compare yourself to others. We are each individuals with unique things to offer, right? It's hard to remember that when it seems like the market is saturated. What do I mean? When I first started blogging over a year ago, there were not as many writer blogs out there. I mean, there were still tons, but not nearly as many as there are now. I started following the powerhouse bloggers like Elana Johnson, Nathan Bransford, Natalie Whipple, and Kiersten White before they had even hit 500 followers. And they always had (and continue to have) pertinent and meaningful things to say in their posts.
In the face of all these bloggers, new and old, someone has said everything I might say at least twice. And they've probably said it better than I would. I can't tell you how many times I go to write a post and read that someone else has all ready covered the topic the day before. And it leaves me feeling inadequate, a little.
In all the proliferation, friends, how do you differentiate yourself? How do you make a unique contribution to all the other things out there?
