Bloggers love the final post of any year, because it is time for “The Best Blog Posts of the Year.”  Although it might seem as if bloggers are back patting themselves, there is a higher purpose for these posts:  milking just a few more reads without having to write new content. I’ve reviewed the posts from the third year of The Summa, and have selected my favorites.  The posts at the start of the year are dominated by accounting standard setting issues, convergence and IFRS.

I am able to write a different style of post at my other blog, Pondering the Classroom.  I just put up the year-end summary.  I hope you are able to read and enjoy these blog posts on college life.

Best of Pondering the Classroom – 2010

I have two blogs:  The Summa and Pondering the Classroom.   I hope you read both.

The Summa, as you know, is a commentary type of blog.  Mostly the posts are editorials where I take a position on a current professional accounting or auditing issue, and argue for my position.  Although I occasionally lapse into lifestyle/humor or news, mostly I am providing commentary in which I fit a current event into my worldview.

Pondering the Classroom is what is called a lifestyle blog–about higher education.  Lifestyle posts revolve around reflection and the point I have to make.  It is not about what I ate for breakfast (blueberry waffles), nor it is about why I ate what I ate for breakfast (it was there).  No, it is about issues that come up in my classes and what I think about them.

I have written a few posts that you might find enjoyable.  Click on the links below and check them out.

As you can plainly see, there is no overlap in subject or style.  That’s why there are two different blogs.  I’m hoping you will become regular readers of both.

It is December 31, and so many of us are getting ready to party.  Everyone is, except accounting bloggers and those who read their blogs.  So as to give you something to do tonight while you sip your diet coke, you can reflect over the high points of The Summa.

Two Weeks in the Life of an Accounting Professor

I devote almost every waking hour to being a professor, yet never seem to get anything done.  Most people think I only work a few hours per week, just the time spent in the classroom.  They aren’t aware of all the behind the scenes activity.

In this series, I’m going to log all of my professorial activities and then comment.  You can see what it’s like to be a professor.  I can get an idea of what I do.

ABSTRACT

Many students experience difficulties when they try to get good grades in their accounting classes, and they are searching for answers.  There is no single answer.  Getting a good grade in an accounting class results from a process.  If you know and understand the process-and can apply it–then your chances are much improved for getting a good grade.  I recommend a process that includes twelve steps: (1) know what the professor expects, (2) be your own teacher, (3) work hard from the first day, (4) attend every class, (5) take good notes, (6) participate in class, (7) read the textbook several times, (8) look for patterns, (9) do the homework, (10) study with a friend, (11) study long and hard for each exam, and (12) live healthfully.
