Has this happened to any of you? I knew by the numbers that my niche was quite competitive, but I forged ahead, researching and finding keyword phrases in Market Samurai that had lower competition and decent traffic. I started tracking my ranking for some of these keywords after posting articles and blog posts optimizing for them.

I was feeling like I was moving in the right direction. I could even see the effect of my efforts in keyword rankings. But today, while I was using Comment Kahuna to post comments on relevant blogs, I saw several of my direct competitors and it scared the heck out of me. I don't know why, exactly. But I just automatically assume their stuff is better than mine. It's probably because I'm so new at this, I don't know. But suddenly it feels like the wind has gone out of my sails, like I'll never be able to compete with these other slick-looking sites.

I'm sure this will pass. Any advice until then?
