Blogging is a way to deal with the biggest problem at the beginning of one’s career: No expertise. If you offer intelligent opinions or advice on a credible blog, then you are an expert. This is why more young people should blog. If you have a focused blog, then you can jump from job to job and learn many skills, but the constant will be that you are an expert in whatever area you choose to research and write about.
Plus, the more people who blog about a given subject, say, accounting, the better the conversations between bloggers. More interaction between blogs on the same topic raise the topic’s profile. I actively encourage any young accountant in particular to blog about their experiences, especially going through the UFE process.
