Content is the king - In the blogging world so diverse and big, you need to establish yourself with a distinction. the only road to it is good, original and valuable content. Be creative, different and surprise your readers once in a while.
E-commerce bloggers can gradually choose to write curated content from other websites/blogs. That always helps because a buyer will generally not spend much time surfing. He/she will appreciate it if you provide most of what they are looking for.
Add your personality - If you are writing on a particular topic, there are a number of people who will be writing on the same topic. So you need to add that specialty to your blog to make it look different and to allow your readers to take away something that the others are not offering.
