In order to triumph over other blogs, who are at this point your main competitors, you have to review competitors’ strengths and weaknesses regularly. Seek out older blogs which are ranking, find out what they are doing well and improve on it so that you can give value to the advertisers who want to hire you. At the end of the day, advertisers desire to get value for their money and your online blog is only useful if it is the best in the field.

Develop an action plan that, over time, will minimize these strengths and exploit weaknesses.
