Blogs have a built-in advantage in that bloggers are generally an easy to touch for getting included in a blogroll (reciprocal links). Nothing wrong with those links. With quality articles and extensive participation in the niche blog community you can pick up citations from bloggers that have not linked to you yet, as well as included into their blogrolls (one-way links).
Now here are the considerations for deciding the viability of the choosing a blog format.
Before building anything, research using a variety of search queries. Start with the Google External tool and find popular keywords then run them through G/Y/Bing and determine what the top sites are, your competitors. Then do competitive intelligence, outline their strengths and weaknesses. Their weaknesses can be your strength. But will that be enough?
