I've started getting added, mostly on Twitter by certain sites that I suppose you could consider to be my competitors.
At first when I started talking to friends about my site and my goals they would say things like "Oh it sounds like this site" and bring up massive established leading sites in my niche.. I suppose I was slightly disheartened but then again not really. I just hadn't thought about it.
The thought of competitors hadn't really crossed my mind much, and my thinking is not to pay much mind, especially since my blog is in such infancy. I have my goals and I have my long term plan. I have a list of backed up post/pages that are not even started, and perhaps after that ill worry about competition, or not...
Im just thinking out loud. On the flip side I saw a few similar blogs that i felt mine was better than.. One had a slightly better looking blog than mine, aesthetically, but I had way more, and I think, better content Still, i could be wrong. One of the people who followed me on twitter also had 2-3 posts written 1-2 days after some of my posts with very similar content. One post in particular was a bit close for comfort... I dunno if this is just the way of the blogging world, I was being copied, or its a coincidence.
Anyone else start spotting similar sites to theirs? How did you feel? Do you worry about competition much?
