Blogging Fan
I read the article, “ Would You, Could You, Should You Blog? ” ( JofA , Jun.05, page 36)—How appropriate! I also read several blogs on technology.

I’ve become hooked on RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, one way to obtain news and blog updates without having to actually visit the site. And I’ve yet to see any accounting-related blogs in my travels. I was so inspired by the article I decided to help change the trend. I hope my blog, http://extremecpa.blogspot.com , will be of interest to those wishing to learn more about fully utilizing technology in the accounting world.

Accountants who would like to control their own future need to embrace this new technology, which Fortune magazine said in January was the no. 1 trend in technology. I also recommend learning more about RSS. See www.rssowl.org for a free news reader.
