More Law Blogs Needed? and More Links Included

To my amazement and undoubtedly that of Joe Kristen, Eva Lang and others, Ari Kaplan argues in Law.Com's Legal Technology section argues that too few lawyers are blogging and that law firms should be more engaged in this communication form. With a "mere" 1000-2000 legal bloggers (not to be confused with 15-25 active accounting bloggers), Kaplan wonders at length by lawyers, with all their training in writing and communication, are not more actively engaged in the blogosphere. One can only say that the message of Mr. Kaplan, Michelle Golden (see below) and others quoted in this report applies to even a greater degree in accounting.

New links now on Tick Marks include Golden Marketing (Michelle Golden, recently quoted here in a post about Accounting blogging, provides marketing ideas for accountants, attorneys and others), SmartPros (a news service which has accounting and finance news as one of their primary focuses (or foci if you prefer)), Big 4 Guy (an anonymous but very interesting blog about auditing and technology), CPA Marketing Center Blog (ideas for marketing a CPA practice) and Gina's Tax Page (Gina Gwozdz of Texas is a "blog daughter" of Kerry Kerstetter of Tax Guru fame). Big 4 Guy would have been competitive in Tuesday's activity review. Golden Marketing and Smart Pros are in the News section; Big 4 Guy and CPA Marketing are in the Accounting section. Finally, I now have a link to the Carnival of Investing, newly hosted by My Money Blog. Welcome to all.

More law blogs are needed. For example, I am not aware of any blogs consistently writing, in English, on the following, for which I feel there is a real need:

1. Russian law
2. Vietnamese law
3. Korean law
4. Maritime law (other than maritime PI law)

It is actually amazing, however, how few accounting blogs there are out there. I notice this whenever I do something on accounting in China and realize nobody else out there is covering it at all.

Thank you for your response. I admit that I didn't think of international law when I posted--I've seen plenty of lawyers blog on politics; you are among the first that I have seen blog on international law. Keep up the good work!
