Posts Tagged ‘12 Blogs of Christmas’

I’ve been blogging for 15 months now.   Many, though, have been doing it far longer and are much better at it than I.  So much so, that I have taken to allocating time every morning for scrolling down through a list of blogs for comments and updates.  Although I read some for information updating, I really enjoy the editorializing.  I try not to subscribe to a lot of e-mail updating, as it really clogs my in-box.

Dan Meyer (Austin Peay) has a blog worth visiting.  His Tick Marks blog (http://tickmarks.blogspot.com) on taxation has received a fair amount of recognition.   What I’m emphasizing today, though, is his blogroll.  A blogroll is a list of readable or favorite blogs, usually in the right hand column.  To be included in somone’s blogroll is an honor, as it means your merit a recommendation.   Dan Meyer spends a lot of time on his blogroll, making sure that it is just right.   He has a special class of blogs, though, called the 12 Blogs of Christmas. These are in emphasized font (bold) on his blogroll.  Some members of AECM (international e-mail listserv for accounting professors) have reached the exalted status of a 12 Blogs of Christmas:   Tom Selling’s Accounting Onion, Francine McKenna’s re: The Auditors, and Edith Orenstein’s FEI Blog.   So too, had one candidate for SEC Chief Accountant–Jack Ciesielski’s The AAO Weblog (not an AECMer, though).

If you don’t yet spend much time reading blogs, I recommend that you start.  A great way to start is to visit the Tick Marks site and daily click on a smattering of blogs (remember, the blogroll is on the right).  You’ll be glad you did.
