You should know  how to differentiate yourself from them in order to leverage the competition.

One factor that affects the sustainability of the topic is the passion of the blogger to it. It is important to know if it is possible to write about the niche on a regular basis. The content should keep flowing and as much as possible, there should be new developments about it. You should make sure that you would have enough content focusing on the topic.
