It’s been two weeks since my last post on this blog and that’s probably the longest gap between posts since I first started blogging almost 3 years ago. There are well over 250 items here and I continue to enjoy writing and sharing ideas, tips and advice both for ambitious accountants who are building their careers and also for those building their practices.

So why the gap? Simply that I am currently being paid to blog elsewhere and there is a limit as to how much time I can devote to writing blog posts. For the month of March I am the Guest editor of PracticeZone on AccountingWEB.

This foray into online journalism has already taught me that it’s not as easy as it might look to produce readable and useful copy to regular deadlines.  Todate I have only had to focus on the weekly practical tax newsletter that I publish through the Tax Advice Network.

As well as my writing commitments I have other consultancy and speaking engagements – and my role as Chairman of the Tax Advice Network – to fulfill. So, of course, paid work takes priority over unpaid blogging.

Incidentally the Network is now fast approaching my target of 2000 registered accountants.  If you have yet to supply your name and email address don’t leave it too late.  Once registered on the site you’ll receive a free weekly email newsletter containing 3 practical points especially written for accountants in general practice – and of course full access to the profiles, articles, ratings and testimonials of all of the independent tax adviser members of our network.

As regards this blog, normal service will be resumed shortly!
