Find Your Niche

Forget about being an A-List blogger because that’s been done. The key is finding your niche.

Blogging is a lot like high school… have you noticed?

There are the popular kids (A-list), class rank (Technorati) and endless other clique rankings (Ad Age Power 150, Techmeme Leaderboard, Cat Blogging Superstars, etc.). All of this makes for the same ol’ hierarchical crap that tends to unnecessarily discourage people who are outside the power structure.

I guess social media is a tad less revolutionary and more like regular ol’ society than some blogging idealists want to admit. What did you expect?

The answer to this reality is much the same as it was in high school. The smart kids ignore the hierarchy and concentrate on defining their own space.

If Copyblogger isn’t in your RSS feed, it should be.
