Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
The large amount of copied content is one of the main reasons why I think content is not the way to go in the near future. It is to easy to duplicate by just taking the static contents of one site and pasting it to another.
The most brilliant, stunning, worthwhile lectures I ever saw on the net were plain .txt files posted by a most esteemed, scientific friend.
Moving forward site authority is becoming extremely important, when starting a new site are you ready to compete for it and stick it out for the long haul?

IMHO, it is important not to get hung up on the medium.
Is it impossible to do it all oneself?
No, no, not at all. I do everything myself and there are many others here on WW who do as well.
But that, to my mind, is all just "the medium" - I enjoy it, it's a fun hobby for me but I am not under any illusion that this is what brings in audience, views, clicks and sales.
