So there I was, watching a DVD with my son, surfing away (since we've watched this movie about 15 times together), and I found the 12 Blogs of Christmas! This blog is listed as #11 (I think the related verse is 'eleven tech guys blogging'). If you don't believe that a blog can help you meet people in your industry, read this post....
Clarksville, Tennessee accounting professor (Austin Peay State University) Dan Meyer maintains the blog, "Tick Marks", and has gently prodded me to write more frequently.... so let's see if we can do this in 2006. Many big things are shaping up for the 2006-2007 CPE season - I'm scheduled to teach about twice as much as 2005, and I'm looking at some extensions of the blog/brand... I've been amazed by the utility of some of the podcasts out there (e.g. Security Now), and am considering a collaborative podcast format (as used in "This Week in Tech"). If you have any experience with podcasting, please drop me a line or call me - I'd like to talk about the good and bad of it, and generally learn more about it.
Dan's complete list of blogs from his site is as follows:
- The Carnival of Personal Finance
- Financial Rounds
- Free Money Finance
- Frugal for Life
- Roth & Company Tax Updates
- Taxable Talk
- Mauled Again
- The AAO Weblog
- CPA Firm Tech Blog (warning: recursive link)
- Vanilla Accounting Blog
*Dan also lists a number of honorable mentions, but I don't want to steal his thunder (or violate his copyright), so I'd like to tell all of you that the links above are presented since they were omitted from the related posts.
