Over this holiday, I’ve been treating myself to exploring the world of accounting blogs.
I like what I see.
I’m delighted that a lot of accountants have taken the plunge into regular blogging.
They’ve decided they want to reap the benefits of regular blogging: connect with clients on a more personal level, establish themselves as experts in their field, and boost their visibility in the search engines.
I’ve found that a few CPA and accounting blogs really stand out above the others. Here’s my list of best accounting blogs for 2010.
My Best of 2010 List
