I told my daughter once, if someone copies you, it is a compliment. Or perhaps it means you are doing the right thing after all? We started our website over a year ago. On it we have our forum where others can go on and comment. Now, sites I checked out a year ago, who had very little other than a product, now all have blogs or forums. Interesting, I guess we were ahead of the times!
A good idea is worth believing in. I like the idea of a blog. But I don't like the idea of the opinion it is something you have to do everyday. I like variety. If the sun is shining, I will walk thru my yard or spend some time outside. That equates to the fact that for that day I will have less time on the computer. Balance, and sticking to a good idea is the way to go.
We have a blog, and we have a forum, or a blog of everyone. We like to call it Talking to Girlfriends! It is a great place to go and give opinions, tell others about a great product or ask a question. It is catching on and it is great. Blog, Blog, Blog. There is one site I have checked out Blogher, and it is good, took a little while for me to figure it totally out. I won't just blog, unless I have something to say. I have seen some that don't even make any sense. If you have an opinion, tell me, tell us, tell everyone. Go to our site and check it out. I love to hear what others have found that is great.
