    It can be a plugin, service, host.. anything.

    I'll go first, for me, investing in CDN is probably one of the best thing that
    I've ever done to help my blog flourish. I don't know if it increased my
    rankings but I am pretty sure that it increased my overall visitor's average
    time on site, pageviews per visit and lowered my bounce rate.

    Which in turn increased my overall income every month. I advise everyone to get
    a CDN, don't be like me, I waited until I was getting 150k UV's per month
    before I got one. Imagine all the potential visitors who exited your site
    because of the ghastly speed performance of your blog.

    I also bought http://codecanyon.net/item/visual-composer-for-wordpress/242431 and I'm loving it,
    I'm not great with design (I suck at color coordination since I'm color blind) so having
    an on-the-fly visual composer like this really speeds up my work, especially since I'm always tweaking my site.

    Share yours? :)

    I'd say it was the first PC my parents ever bought for me. I was probably 11 or 12 at the time. Not exactly an investment on my part, but I think I learnt everything I needed to know as a result of that.

    My best investment EVER was definitely: nuance dragon naturallyspeaking! I take tons of memos on my iphone.. and with this great little tool I just import them and have them in readable lists :D sheer awesomeness for someone who's brain works best when he's driving :)

    Probably a $100 service I bought here on BHW that made me about $10k profit in only 2 months... that's at least my luckiest investment yet, can't think of others atm.

    2 years back I bought a blogging network for (almost) nothing.. Lucky investment, made about 4k a month for 6 months.

    Time. Time to read and apply those you learn, and keep on testing and searching for more strategy and twist.

    My greatest investment in blogging is certainly buying great blogger templates which are licensed.

    My best investment is to "actually take action", I used to read a lot and see a lot of obstacles before doing anything. But "actually take action" has solved every problem and therefore, the money just roll in from money tree!

    First, the best investment for me was finding God and accepting Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior.

    After that, the next best investment I made was upgrading my brain with nootropics, seriously no joke (Google nootropics if you don't know what they are and decide how far you want to go down the rabbit hole).

    Then after that the next best investment was finding my wife.

    I'm sorry if my answers don't fit the intended context of the initial question, but I gave it my best shot :)
