  1. I like number 8…although I hope anyone reading it understand the importance of putting your own spin on things. I learned in Business that you can just about guaruntee success by identifying a missing need and then filling it….so by simply repeating blogs and being just another site or person offering the same thing…you just blend in. But if you take that and think of to make it fulfill needs better or how to make it more intersting and fun…then you are on to something! Great post!
