How can I have my cake abroad and eat it, too?

In a few years once I've finished college, I'd like to travel the world and pay for that travel, at the same time. How feasible is this?

I've read about people who teach English to make money, work in hostels to get free room and board, that sort of thing. How is this sort of nomadic lifestyle possible? Should one look for local work, or freelance for companies worldwide? Under-the-table work? Is the Peace Corps a viable option for this? The Geek Corps? I'd be happy volunteering for a few months provided my basic expenses are covered.
I'm interested in both first- and third-world destinations (really, anywhere and everywhere), but my main goal is to not stay in one place for too long.
Blogs by people who are doing this (with financial advice), or general ideas on how to make money while traveling are welcomed.
If anyone here has done or is doing this, bonus points.
