In this continuing series, I am covering how you can become not only
the best blogger you can be, but also how to become recognized in your
field and thus adequately compensated. The first two installments
covered tactics – commenting and optimizing for search – but in this third post, I am making it more personal.
There are traits that are uniquely ideal for blogging. I believe the most important of these traits is curiosity.
But how can something as abstract as curiosity lead to concrete
blogging results, nay success? What are the benefits of curiosity? I’ve
gathered some of the best comments on this topic and I hope it proves
enlightening. (If so, please feel free to comment below and subscribe to be notified of future posts on the subject.)

Curiosity is arguably caused by the pain – or perhaps frustration –
of a gap in knowledge. Most of us have experienced this condition in
acute or chronic form.
