It’s time for another professional crush (see ’em here)!

When I started to learn about working online, and getting paid for it, one name kept coming across my search results, Erin Blaskie.

Blaskie is not only described as being in a ‘hot, passionate love affair with the Internet’ but she is nothing short of a digital media princess.

In college, I majored in electronic and corporate communications and spent most of my time in the campus radio and TV stations. As a result, I love podcasts, technology, and everything digital media. That’s why today’s professional crush is Erin Blaskie.

Blaskie is based in Canada, and runs a number of services for online businesses and activities.

Last February, I attended her Blog Design Bootcamp 3.0. She not only answered questions, posted additional resources, posted the videos, but also gave us the opportunity to submit any question we had when it came to blogging. It was awesome… I should probably go back and revamp this blog…

Blaskie is the business woman I aspire to be. She’s not only knowledgeable, but extremely easy to talk to. That doesn’t happen very often.

She has an an amazing blogging ethic, is an early adopter of online tools, and is really into customer service. She provides free emails with tips, eBooks, and much more.

What that has taught me: Never underestimate the value of giving information away.

If you have valuable information, people will come back for more. Case and point: Blaskie’s success despite a YouTube channel full of valuable information.

You can listen to interviews, guest blogging places, and awards here.
