Bloggertunities: blogging opportunities

“There are three ingredients in the good life: learning, earning and yearning.” - Christopher Morley

As an online media producer – which is what you are as a blogger, right? – you have to be constantly striving to learn new things. The web changes daily. Heck, maybe even hourly! There is always a new tool to discover, a new tip to learn, a new plugin to check out, a new way to earn money to try. The moment you think you’ve hit the big time, get comfortable, and stop yearning for more… That’s the moment that the competition passes you. So – I totally agree with this week’s quote: Learning, Earning, and Yearning are what will drive you towards success when working online. And hopefully you’ll learn some new tips in this post to help you earn more, and motivate you to keep yearning for the next new cool discovery that will boost your blog up another notch. Got tips to share? I love comments – and the more great tips, resources, and links you leave in the comments of this post, the more great content there is for everyone who stops by to read this week’s post! I look forward to seeing what types of cool stuff you guys have to share {and if it’s something ongoing like a linky, let me know so I can feature it here next week.}
